Project funded to build sustainable agriculture, energy, renewable resources in NEO

Last November 3, we met at Corporate College in Cleveland to discuss a
green, sustainability agenda for inclusion in the Advance Northeast
Ohio Plan.  Brian Gwin, Steve Bosserman and I shared a vision for
building local economies in Northeast Ohio starting with local food
systems, leading to renewable energy and distributed manufacturing with
renewable raw materials from the region's agricultural lands.  We're
delighted to share with you the news that the project has been
supported by the Fund for Our Economic Future.  A summary of the
project is attached, and a news article from our local paper here in
Wooster.  We're looking forward to working with you on this project and
will be using the Advance Northeast Ohio Partners working group on
localfoodsystems.org as a way of keeping you updated and helping those
interested with getting involved.  If you know of others who would be
interested in this effort, please use the "invite a friend" link under "Communicate with other users" on the site
home page to send them an invitation.
