Thursday is organic day and farmers market day at GLEXPO. The price is reduced to encourage single day attendance of $45.00 for walk in. the trade show is great, but note it closes at 1 pm on Thursday, but then you can often purchase the goods that are on display from the vendors.

But in addition to attending the GLEXPO you can join us for the annual meeting of Michigan Organic Food and Farm Alliance (MOFFA). Join us at 3:30 on Thursday at the DeVos Center in Grand Rapids. We will discuss what's been happening at MOFFA, have a quick vote if the organization should be a membership or directorship organization and then seek your input for possible actions and activities that MOFFA can offer/coordinate/organize…

Come See Us At GLEXPO!

MOFFA will be holding its Annual Meeting on Thursday, December 12th,
from 3:30 to 5:00 pm, immediately following the Advanced Organic
Vegetable Systems session in Gallery Overlook Room G-H, DeVos Place
Convention Center (upper level).

The Annual Meeting will begin with a brief voting session for current
members, but non-members are welcome.  After the voting, the remainder
of the time will be devoted to socializing, networking, and discussing
how to both expand our membership and increase the number of members who
are actively involved in the pursuit of our mission ... while enjoying
local organic food and drink.

We will also be in the exhibit hall at GLEXPO on all three days, in
booth #1346, with a great selection of books on organic and sustainable
farming, as well as information on MOFFA's activities and programs, and
a chance to chat with MOFFA members.

If you have any questions or comments, please email us at
