Tri-state local food website launched
A new, tri-state collaboration has resulted in a website to assist rural community food system development.
Designed to support rural communities beginning to build local food systems, as well as those with more developed ones, the web site is www.extension.umn.edu/rsdp/community-and-local-food/. It brings together the following organizations:
Regional Sustainable Development Partnerships (University of Minnesota Extension).
North Dakota State University Extension Service.
Buy Fresh Buy Local South Dakota.
FARRMS, a non-profit based in Medina, N.D.
It will be useful to those working in local foods seeking production assistance, expanded marketing opportunities, developing stronger businesses, creating new sourcing options, educating citizens and crafting more beneficial public policies.
