Building on the momentum of four previous conferences and trainings, Groundwork Center for Resilient Communities is proud to partner with Munson Healthcare, Great Lakes Culinary Institute of Northwestern Michigan College, and Traverse Bay Area Intermediate School District to present the first joint Farms, Food & Health Conference with a Culinary Medicine training for accredited healthcare professionals.

This event brings together the cross-sector networking and interactive workshops and presentations of Farms, Food & Health with the hands-on culinary training of Culinary Medicine. By tying these two events together, as well as adding a large public keynote address, teacher training workshop, expo, and many more conference-related activities, this event will highlight innovative initiatives, engage a large, diverse audience and provide much-needed technical skill-building for healthcare providers and educators.
