Planning for Local Food Production
Activity Code: S526
Date: Monday, April 15
Illinois’s McHenry County and Kane County cover more than 400,000 fertile acres that, over the last 50 years, have been used for commodity crops or converted to newly constructed subdivisions. With a growing demand for local foods, both counties have bolstered efforts to meet this demand. This session will cover both traditional (surveys, focus groups) and innovative (health impact assessment) planning tools each community used to assess and plan for increased local food production.
