ABOUT THE WORKSHOP...
Every year, more of us are figuring it out: With greenhouse gas emissions rising, global oil production likely at or near its peak, and North American natural gas production past its peak, we need an alternative to the oil and natural gas-dependent industrial food system. If we want to eat well in the future, now it the time to create a regional food system that will rapidly reduce our dependence on fossil fuel inputs in the production, processing and distribution of food.

The workshop features Ken Meter of the Crossroads Resource Center, Minneapolis, MN. The Crossroads Center works to strengthen local communities by building wealth that stays in the region. He will speak about the important use of local economic analysis in building regional food systems.
