New food systems for a new world! From Local Orbit:
Local Orbit’s Hub Camps are Back!
Local Orbit is excited to announce three new Hub Camps:
Hub Camp: The Nuts & Bolts of Local Food Distribution
November 17-19 in Denver
January 24-26 in Portland
March 1-3 in San Diego
Hub Camp is an intensive three-day, hands-on, immersion experience designed to help you quickly learn, launch and adapt as you grow your local food system.
“Can hardly express how much magic is in the air at #hubcamp” @UrbanAgrarian (Davis, 4/14)
“I’ve learned more in three days of Hub Camp than I have in three years of conferences.” (Grand Rapids, 1/14)
Practical, hands-on training led by Noah Fulmer and Erika Block.
Noah Fulmer, the Director of Training at Local Orbit, is the former operator and co-founder of Farm Fresh Rhode Island, a wholesale food hub that aggregates and delivers produce, dairy, meat and dry goods from 60 local farmers and producers to 100 buyers each week.
Erika Block, CEO of Local Orbit, which supports diverse local distribution models across the country. Erika brings unique perspective on best practices and challenges within this emerging sector, and she’s also built and managed two start-up businesses.
Plus: Wholesale buyers and topic experts on food safety, finance & legal issues
The interactive format is structured with flexibility to address the individual needs of each participant. Walk away from Hub Camp with a six-month action plan for building a multi-farm aggregation and distribution business.
Space is limited to 20 participants per workshop, so APPLY EARLY.
