The plan

We are developing and implementing an adaptable plan to grow our local food economy for the benefit of all.

Current Projects

Though we’ve just begun, exciting things are already happening!

What is a foodshed?

Your foodshed is all the places that your food comes from and through. We aim to spur more discussion about this all-important geography.

 Who we are

We are led and advised by community members, business leaders, farmers, food systems experts, and more. 

“If we are to become native to our places, the foodshed is one way of envisioning that beloved country”
