Event Description

This conference takes on the Northeast region. By taking a regional approach, we can grow our thinking and our work to develop a truly sustainable and resilient food system. We can build upon our "thousand points of local" to achieve optimal scale, location, variety and supply for all communities and all supply chain participants.

This conference will build from last year while also embracing more folks, new examples and fresh ideas.

Come prepared to roll up your sleeves. We'll offer in-depth working sessions, provocative debates and hands-on exercises. We'll tackle important questions about regional food systems and how we can get there.

We'll draw upon the local and regional exciting efforts underway and emerging in our region and nationally, including alternative supply chain networks, research projects, infrastructure initiatives and policy advocacy.
