Please join us January 29 and 30, 2016 for the 17th Annual Northern Michigan Small Farm Conference.
at the grand traverse resort
Keynote Speaker: Dr. Daphne Miller
Part clinician, part ecologist, and part anthropologist, Miller approaches medicine with the idea that opportunities for health and healing are found not only in the medical system but in such unexpected places as home kitchens, school gardens, community organizations, spiritual centers, farms, and nature trails. Throughout her career, her teaching, writing, and advocacy work has reflected this perspective. Author of Farmacology: What Innovative Family Farming Can Teach Us About Health and Healing.
