Saratoga Springs, NY
NESAWG's annual It Takes a Region Conference takes on the 12-state Northeast region from Maine to West Virginia. By taking a regional approach, we can grow our thinking and our work to develop a truly sustainable and resilient food system. We can build upon our "thousand points of local" to achieve optimal scale, location, variety and supply for all communities and all supply chain participants.

We ask our attendees to come prepared to roll up their sleeves. Each year, we offer in-depth working sessions, provocative debates and hands-on exercises. We tackle important questions about our regional food system and how we can strengthen it.
We draw upon the exciting local and regional efforts underway and emerging in our region and nationally, including alternative supply chain networks, research projects, infrastructure initiatives and policy advocacy.
Each year, we look at the trajectory of the food and farm movement, and the role the organizations that comprise the NESAWG network have to play in shaping its future. Make sure you have a seat at the table at every conference. It takes a region, after all!
