Growing Local Food Systems: A Case Study Series on Local Governments

Apr 14 2015

Produced in partnership with the International City/County Management Association’s Center for Sustainable Communities (ICMA), this report features four case studies highlighting various forms of local government support for food systems in Catawba County, NC; Decatur, GA; Topsham, ME and Washtenaw County-Ann Arbor, MI. Lessons learned may be helpful to those interested in working within or with their local governments on marketing, coordination, policy and funding for food system activities.
