The State of Our Local Suburban Agriculture: Where do we grow from here?

The National Center for Suburban Studies at Hofstra University along with The Long Island Food Coalition, formerly Long Island Small Farm Initiative, and The North Shore Land Alliance are proud to present a conference on The State of Our Local Suburban Agriculture: Where do we grow from here?

This conference will bring together local experts in the fields of sustainable food production and distribution representing the current practices in both agriculture and aquaculture of the area.  There will be opportunity to discuss obstacles to our local food system that are impeding sustainable progress.   The desired outcome from this gathering of experts is to lay down the pathway for a vibrant local food system, one that supports growers committed to providing the community access to high quality products.
