NERCRD Helps to Launch New eXtension COP

Posted: November 6, 2012

The Northeast Regional Center for Rural Development collaborated in a successful $50,000 application to launch a new Community, Local and Regional Food Systems Community of Practice.

This new COP is closely integrated with The Center's on-going Enhancing Food Security in the Northeast grant, and it brings together other 2011 NIFA Global Food Security grant recipients from across the nation. The effort is led by Kathy Ruhf of NESAWG, Deno De Ciantis of the Penn State Center at Pittsburgh, Brian Raison at Ohio State and Sharon Lezberg at the University of Wisconsin.
