Placemaking

The Placemaking program is taking an approach towards geographic food systems development which breaks the state into clusters (foodsheds) based on how food travels, common culture, and producers. The Coalition intends to organize around local food and let the foodsheds and the communities take control of their food system development. Ultimately this will result in foodshed identities, connecting the local food sector to tourism as visitors seek unique experiences. We aim to help communities in various geographic areas to create their own experiences utilizing local foods as economic development.
