Apr 13, 2019

  "Steinman shows us we can confront the power of food retailser and create an inclusive, health promoting, and sustainable food system" Rod MacRae, Asssociate Professor York University. 

In northern MN we've got Natural Harvest Food Coop in Virginia, Harmony Coop in Bemidji, Crow Wing Food Coop in Brainerd and the soon to be Free Range Coop in Grand Rapids. 

Steinman will be in northern MN this July (Grand Rapids) and September (Bemidji).
