    Harvesting Opportunity: The Power of Regional Food System Investments to Transform Communities

    Communities across the country challenged by the changing conditions in the coal industry are exploring innovative revitalization and diversification strategies to build stronger, more resilient economies. Investing in agriculture and regional food systems has emerged as a leading diversification strategy that can be replicated across coal-reliant communities from Colorado to Kentucky. Join us for this educational webinar to learn about practical tools and strategies outlined in a new book by the USDA and the Federal Reserve support stakeholders in developing regional food systems as a part of their economic development plans.  Additionally, this webinar will feature current examples of how traditionally coal-reliant communities in Colorado are integrating agriculture into their economic diversification roadmaps.
