NEK Food System PlanVermont's only comprehensive regional food system plan -- is based on a "soil-to-soil" food system model that engages with all individuals and organizations with a stake in the wellbeing of the food system, from the cultivation and production of food, through consumption and waste. The soil-to-soil loop is "closed" between waste management and production inputs, because the waste becomes compost.
The 2016 NEK Plan was developed through a partnership between NVDA and the Center for an Agricultural Economy. USDA Rural Development provided grant funding. 2016 NEK Food System Plan is available to download in Adobe Acrobat Format.
