New jobs are being created in our "food system" which includes the process of growing, processing, distributing, consuming, and composting/recycling. This summit intends to place local food and agricultural economic development on the local agenda. The net result will be greater possibilities of working together, creating jobs, doing business, and expanding the economy right here in Northeast Indiana.
