Our 2014 It Takes a Region conference will be held November 11-12 at the Saratoga Hilton in Saratoga Springs, NY. Pre- conference sessions begin November 10.
This year's theme: REGION-SIZING: MAKING IT WORK!
What does it take to make our food system strong, resilient and region-sized? What does real collaboration and cooperation look like? How can we be more effective? We'll be exploring the various channels, mechanisms, structures and infrastructures for making region-sizing work at NESAWG's 2014 It Takes a Region Conference.
Together, we'll explore some of the tremendous advances we've made in region-sizing the food system to date, as well as new opportunities for collaboration. We'll explore and address the work of farmers, food hubs, cooperatives, and market innovators, non-governmental organizations and Departments of Agriculture, independent researchers, land grant universities, farmworkers, as well as the efforts of science writers and journalists to amplify our stories. On Tuesday evening, our keynote speaker Jim Hightower will issue a rallying cry for collaboration and change. Read more. >
