Currently the demand for locally-produced foods in South Carolina is much greater than the supply, creating tremendous economic opportunities for local farms and markets and also consumers interested in a more healthy diet. This workshop will address local food policies in South Carolina from farm to fork, looking at all aspects of food policy in South Carolina including sustainable production, distribution and consumption trends and why a sustainable food system is advantageous to South Carolina. The goal of the workshop is to explore challenges and opportunities leading to the development of sustainable food systems for South Carolina, including key economic, environmental, food distribution and health aspects that are critical to sustainable, local food systems. The result of this workshop will be a set of written guiding principles for achieving a more sustainable, local food system in South Carolina.
The registration deadline is January 8, 2010. More information and registration details can be found on the South Carolina Department of Agriculture Food Policy Counsel website.
