Kansas Symposium Focuses on Building Community Wealth through Local Food Systems

Kansas Rural Center has released a series of four articles based on the 2018 Harvesting Opportunities in Kansas Symposium. These offer an in-depth look at the opportunities and challenges in building, maintaining, and growing local and regional food systems in Kansas. The stories showcase diversifying agricultural operations to include more fruit and vegetable production to sell locally, building relationships in the food system, making good connections with community members and policymakers, and opportunities for financing and investing to grow and expand Kansas food and agriculture businesses.
