Announcing Allen Market Place’s Fall 2014 Food and Farming Workshop Series!

Workshops will be held at:

Allen Market Place, 1629 E. Kalamazoo St. Lansing, MI 48912

And, are broken into two different styles:

Wednesdays from 1-1:30 PM: 20-30 minute “flash trainings” that provide an in-depth look at a single topic, conveniently timed to fit busy producer’s schedules and coincide with the Allen Street Farmers Market.

Fridays from 1-3 PM: More conventional workshops covering a range of topics around improving food safety and business practices for farmers, food producers, or those interested in starting new food businesses.
