Harmony Co-op's 4th Annual Growers Summit

The entire team of Harmony’s Buyers want to remind you all of our commitment to sourcing as many quality local products as possible in order to strengthen and sustain our local food economy. We are your partners in this growing local food system!

Product Manager, Lisa Weiskopf, discusses climate change with the attendees of the 2017 Growers Summit.

Harmony’s purpose in convening annual gatherings with our Growers and Buyers meets three important needs:

  • it provides our internal department Buyers an opportunity to connect with new and existing Growers in the region in order to meet Harmony’s increasing demand for local products;

  • it provides other Buyers, Growers and value-added Producers an opportunity to connect with one another in order to strengthen existing resources; and

  • it helps to generate conversation and direction regarding long-range planning of a sustainable Buyer/Grower network in this region.​

Our Growers Summit's have included:

  • Resource development discussions to guide both the Grower and the Buyer of Local Foods (2015)

  • Food Safety on the Farm (2016)

  • Climate Change and Local Food Initiatives (2017)​
