Conference to Build Our Northeast Food System
Posted by on May 24, 2010
IT TAKES A REGION – 2010:
A CONFERENCE TO BUILD OUR NORTHEAST FOOD SYSTEM
WHEN: November 12-13, 2010, with pre-conference trainings on November 11
WHERE: Desmond Hotel and Conference Center, Albany, NY
This year, Northeast Sustainable Agriculture Working Group (NESAWG) and partners will draw on the success of our 2009 “It Takes a Region” conference. Once again, we’ll look at exciting efforts underway in our region. We’ll hear and build from the work groups established last year — including alternative supply chain networks, research and food system assessments, infrastructure initiatives, and policy advocacy. We will welcome new participants and address pressing new issues. We’ll continue to explore scale, size, geography and cross-sector partnerships. Watch for new features this year!
