Research & Education

As part of our mission to help build a sustainable, just and economically vibrant region, NESAWG shares information with network participants about our food system and encourages active involvement through our research and education efforts.  These include:


NESAWG has developed seminal reports and studies in collaboration with our participating organizations.  These include New England Food Policy: Building a Sustainable Food System, released in March 2014 with American Farmland Trust and Conservation Law Foundation; and Northeast Farms to Food: Understanding Our Region's Food System (we are currently fundraising to do a new version on this report based on the new USDA Census of Agriculture), which offers a wealth of information about the Northeast food and agriculture system.
