Supporting a Diverse Local Agricultural Economy


December 10, 2010


North Charleston, SC


The Northeast and other regions are seeing a resurgence of prosperous small farms and value-added food production in response to growing demand from restaurants and local-stores. Food systems, from seed to distribution to solid waste is a new community planning arena. Successful and innovative examples that are diversifying our agricultural economy will be highlighted, as well as ideas on how planners can incorporate support for this bright side of our rural or urban agricultural economy into their planning.

All webcasts are scheduled to begin at 1:00 pm in the BCD COG conference room and approved for 1.5 hours of CE credits by SC. Attendees are welcome to bring lunch if combining these with a lunch hour.
