Indiana Uplands: Local Food, Local Good A 2020 Report
We teamed up with IU Sustainable Food Systems Science to hold community interest meetings in counties across the Indiana Uplands. In this project, we listened and learned from community members about their food system to identify the needs and ideas for improvement and mapped the regional food system assets including farmers, markets, and businesses and organizations. We then gathered and hosted a regional conference to promote coordination and cooperation across the region for economically energizing food systems projects. This project is allowing IU and community partners throughout the Indiana Uplands to create strategies that will improve the regional food system, fostering social, economic, and environmental sustainability for residents.
