Creating A Resilient Table
Practical Strategies for Creating a Space to Do Hard Work
Sandy Anderson has over 25 years experience working with organizations and individuals who are seeking relevancy and resiliency in what they do and how they accomplish it. She understands the joys and challenges farmers' markets face in today's world, as expectations are high for markets and vendors to offer healthy and safe food, entertainment and kids activities, food access for everyone -- and all on tight budgets. Sandy will provide insight and practical steps for folks to explore what three ingredients develop a resilient table, how we as individuals make choices regarding our environmental impact, and whether those choices build or unintentionally sabotage progress at the table.
