Collaboration is critical to any network, and NESAWG's discussion and work groups connect people throughout the region and across sectors. Groups meet at our annual It Takes a Region conference to network, share resources and best practices, identify gaps, and brainstorm solutions. Group participants continue the discussions and share resources through our online forums below.
Some groups learn best practices from one another and share strategies; others get involved in grant-funded projects together. Innovative projects groups have partnered on include:
- The NEFKE project, initiated by the Research and Assessment Group
- The Vermont Meat Processing Guide, a report produced by the Infrastructure Group (now a part of the Distribution and Food Hubs Group)
- Building the Movement: Labor in the Northeast Food System, a white paper written by members of the Labor and Trade Group
Want to be part of the conversation? Join a group today and gain access to online discussion forums to post your inquiries, share your ideas and take action to strengthen our regional food system. (Note: you must have a NESAWG profile to join a group.)
