Weigh in on policies impacting locally-grown food

Farmers are invited to a listening session on regulations that could hamper or help local food production and markets, being held from 4 to 6 p.m., Oct. 22, at Western Carolina University.

It is sponsored by the Western North Carolina Food Policy Council and the N.C. Sustainable Local Foods Advisory Council.

Held in Blue Ridge Hall conference room A. Space limited, so RSVP is encouraged.
