Workshop Session: Friday II
Local food systems should build health, wealth, connection, and capacity in rural and urban communities. However, “local” food efforts often don’t achieve these ends. We’ve traveled the country and will share economic structures and communities that are succeeding in these areas, and show you how their approaches could strengthen your organic food marketing.
Ken Meter, one of the most experienced food system analysts in the U.S., co-wrote the USDA Economic Impacts Toolkit, and co-edited a forthcoming food system assessments book.
Megan Phillips Goldenberg, New Growth Associates, brings seasoned experience producing feasibility studies, economic analysis, and policy recommendation.
