A New England Food Vision is a collaborative report that considers the future of our region: a future in which food nourishes a social, economic, and environmental landscape that supports a high quality of life for everyone, including generations to come. Join us for a webinar to learn about the Vision, its bold goal for New England to produce at least 50% of clean, fair, just, and accessible food for all New Englanders by 2060, and how the Vision is being used in communities across the region.

  • Learn about the Vision and what it means for the region and communities
  • Hear about ways that the Vision is being used by communities, organizations, and states
  • Discover ways to continue collaboration toward a sustainable food future for all

Featured presenters for this webinar include Courtney Bourns, Henry P. Kendall Foundation, Joanne Burke, UNH Sustainability Institute, UNH College of Life Sciences & Agriculture, Brian Donahue, Brandeis University, Tom Kelly, UNH Sustainability Institute, and Karen Spiller, KAS Consulting.

Your comment counts!

Get informed and take action on the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA)'s Produce Safety Rule and Preventive Controls Rule. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is asking for feedback from farmers and consumers before the rules are finalized. We have the chance to fix FSMA so that the rules support a healthier and more just, sustainable food system.

The National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition's guidelines for consumers and farmers to submit comments can be found here.
