Workforce development is among the most important components to a successful economic development strategy. Another is collaboration and long-term cooperative efforts among key stakeholders. Few places can demonstrate this better than the Magic Valley Region of South Central Idaho, which, with its 400,000-plus acres of irrigated agriculture as a base, has become a food manufacturing hub and received a coveted federal designation of Food Manufacturing Community. The mobile workshop will tour the College of Southern Idaho's Applied Technology Innovation Center and Clif Bar Baking Company and include a scenic stopover at Shoshone Falls.
* Lunch is included in this mobile workshop. Participants should wear comfortable walking shoes and dress to be outside. Please note that there is a 1.5 hour drive each way.
