Do you know who grows your food? How do you picture him or her?
Michelle Napier-Dunnings, Executive Director of Michigan Food & Farming Systems (MIFFS) will introduce you to just a few of The Many Faces of Farming in Michigan.
These faces work in rural, suburban, and urban communities, they grow food in diverse environments, and they often work in collectives. Some are just beginning, while others are carrying on traditions passed down by their ancestors. Each face reflects a unique story while all the faces reflect determination, joy, and a relentless persistence to care for the earth while producing good food for themselves, their families, and all of us!
