Farms, Food & Health is a Groundwork Center project that brings together health practitioners, employers, hospital and school food service directors, educators, farmers, and others interested in connecting the dots between health care, wellness, and locally grown food.
We worked with leading health care, farm, and school partners to hold two different Farms, Food & Health events.
You can find more details about what took place at those conferences and related resources here. The following was our conference call to action.

Bridging the traditional divide between agriculture and medicine, Dr. Miller -- author of the book Farmacology -- shares lessons learned from inspiring farmers, community gardeners and biomedical researchers and artfully weaves their insights and discoveries, along with stories from her patients, into the narrative. The result is a compelling new vision for sustainable healing and a treasure trove of farm-to-body lessons that have immense value in our daily lives. She also penned Jungle Effect about healthy diets from around the world.
