Abstract

Students in an ISU sustainable agriculture class worked with the Leopold Center's Regional Food Systems Working Group on cementing ties with community food groups and enterprises.

Key Question

Can we engage ISU sustainable agriculture graduate students in project-focused work that would support the Regional Food System Working Groups (RFSWGs)?

Findings

The work benefited both groups, and forged improved connections between the teaching and outreach/extension function of ISU. Such revitalization seems especially important given declining Extension resources available for rural community development.
