All-America Selections and National Garden Bureau have announced that the 2016 AAS Summer Summit will be held in Madison, WI. The Summit takes place August 24-26, and registration opens in May.
As a way of supporting the locally grown movement, summit attendees will tour AAS Trials and display gardens as well as local businesses, while having the chance to meet and hear from leaders of Wisconsin’s local community.
According to AAS, the state of Wisconsin is ranked sixth out of 51 states and provinces as most committed to the locavore movement. TakeApart.com also ranked Wisconsin eighth in states where it’s easy to eat locally based on the number of farmers markets, CSAs (Community Supported Agriculture), and food hubs.
