Growing Food micro-Enterprise - with Devita Davison, Food Lab Detroit

Are you a current or aspiring food entrepreneur or micro enterprise? Or a small food business interested in being part of a sustainable local food economy which enhances the health and wellbeing of communities?





You are invited to an interactive workshop, cohosted by Moreland City Council and Sustain: The Australian Food Network, featuring Devita Davison,, Executive Director of FoodLab Detroit, telling the inspiring story of the good food movement in Detroit, and the push to build a vibrant food economy in the wake of the decline of the automobile and other manufacturing industries.

She will share the case studies of diverse groups of local entrepreneurs, the skills and confidence they've developed through the Foodlab Detroit program, and how they have gone on to establish food businesses and grow a more equitable food supply which honours identity and culture.

FoodLab is a membership-based non-profit organisation with a vision to cultivate, connect and catalyze, to use food as an economic engine, to form a supportive community of entrepreneurs and to make good food a reality for all Detroiters.
