To explore new ideas for creating local food systems, the North CentralRegion Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Professional Development Program hosted a two-day conference in Madison, WI in late September.

The overall goal for the training was development of a regional network ofeducators, working on scaling up local sustainable food systems, who could actively share information and be more effective in efforts to scale up local food systems in their states.

Participants from Kansas included Rhonda Janke, KSU; Dan Nagengast, and Mercedes Taylor-Puckett, Scott Allegrucci, KRC; Twilya L’Ecyer, Washington Co. Farm Bureau;Jennifer Smith, Douglas Co.Extension; and Rebecca McMahon, Sedgwick Co. Extension.
