In October 2015 the MSU Center for Regional Food Systems convened a special one-day invitational workshop focused on the economic impacts of local and regional food systems.  The core of the workshop was based on a USDA-funded local food economic toolkit project: http://www.localfoodeconomics.com/

More than 60 people from 25 different organizations attended this one-day workshop. Because there was so much interest, the MSU Center for Regional Food Systems (CRFS) is working with the workshop instructors to offer a special webinar on Monday, December 14th from 1:30 to 2:30 pm EST.  This webinar will provide an overview of what was covered in the October workshop. Instructors will be Dawn Thilmany and Becca Jablonski from Colorado State University.

To register for this webinar and receive an e-mail confirmation with information to join (and to put on your calendar) please click here. Registration is required to join the webinar. Participation is limited to the first 100 who log into the webinar on December 14.

The webinar will be recorded and the link posted on the CRFS website within a few days after the webinar.  If you have questions, please contact Rich Pirog, MSU CRFS at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
