Wisconsin Local Food Network strives to increase communication, coordination, equity, and participation in local, resilient, sustainable, healthy food and agricultural systems. Our listserv was started in 2007 to help local food organizations across the state communicate and coordinate resources. This post is a weekly summary of WLFN’s progress, partners, and learning.
