In 2022, the Land Stewardship Project held a series of meetings in western Minnesota where farmers, business owners, local government officials, and consumers shared their insights on what’s needed to create a community-based food system that’s good for the land, our communities, and local economies. During these meetings, “asset mapping” exercises were undertaken to determine where we are currently at in terms of accessibility to community-based foods. Below is a listing of some of the input that emerged from these listening sessions. For more information, contact LSP’s Amy Bacigalupo (firstname.lastname@example.org, (612-767-9883) or Scott DeMuth (email@example.com, 612-767-9487).
