The 2018 Southeast Michigan Magazine Release Party was full of friendship and community. The Beer Garden at Cultivate Coffee & TapHouse was buzzing with bees enjoying the vegetable beds and friends from the local food community celebrating another year of hard work towards strengthening the local food system. I had the pleasure of speaking with someone who has been supporting local food in Southeast Michigan for more than 30 years, Corrine Sikorski, General Manager of the Ypsilanti Food Co-op, who agrees that TLD has really helped to create connections and build community among local food activists and supporters in this area.
