Economic Gardening – get the goods!

Don’t miss the August Michigan Rural Network Meeting!

We have an exciting agenda for you at this month’s Michigan Rural Network meeting.  Along with the usual information sharing and networking opportunities, we will be spending time talking about economic gardening in Michigan.  Many of you have heard Governor Snyder use this term in his talks across the state and you may have seen news articles about the Michigan Economic Development Corporation’s work in this area.

We are happy to offer you the opportunity to interact with Public Policy Associates to learn about upcoming workshops on the topic.  We will also be hearing from Mark Lange, Executive Director at the Edward Lowe Foundation on economic gardening specific to rural communities.  This is a great opportunity for you to learn from and talk with experts in this field.  We hope you will join us and invite your colleagues as well!

We will be meeting from 2:00 – 3:30pm at Greenstone Farm Credit Services located at 3515 West Road, East Lansing, MI 48823.  Please RSVP to Kari Marciniak ( to ensure adequate refreshments.
