'Food and Society... From West Michigan to the World' September 5

GRAND HAVEN, Mich. -- The Tri-Cities Historical Museum and Loutit District Library (LDL) will team up on Sept. 5 to host Livestock and Dairy Specialist Ernie Birchmeier as he presents "Food and Society…From West Michigan to the World."

Birchmeier’s presentation is free to the public and runs from 7-8:30 p.m. in LDL’s Program Room A.

Birchmeier  works for the Michigan Farm Bureau.  His presentation will focus on the importance of agriculture to West Michigan and why our farmers are critical to the food industry on a worldwide basis. He will help those in attendance understand that "locally grown is good and so is food grown in other parts of the country, and food from small farms is good and so is food from large farms.” There will be time for questions and answers following his presentation.

This program is in cooperation with the Agricultural Expo 2013 on Saturday, Sept. 7 at the Tri-Cities Historical Museum, 200 Washington Avenue from 9 a.m. to  2 p.m.
