Join us for the 2018 Statewide Gathering, held this year at Colby-Sawyer College in New London, NH. The Food Alliance remains focused on improving farm, fish, and food enterprise viability in New Hampshire, and therefore will offer a variety of workshops related to the work of the Action Teams and other Network Partners in the state.

Join us at the gathering to:

  1.  Connect with others in the food system;
  2.  Learn about and get involved with Action Team projects, some of which include: grassroots local foods education and marketing campaign; peer-to-peer conservation easement workshops and innovative funding for agricultural land conservation; identifying the gaps in the landscape of technical assistance for farms and food businesses; increasing low-income residents' access to healthy, local food through fruit and vegetable prescription programs.
  3. Learn about and engage with other work happening through New Hampshire's food system.
