We’ll explore questions such as, What is a durable economy, and how is it created and sustained? How are our food systems incorporated into our communities? What roles do local farms and food distributors play in developing a healthy, vibrant community?

Leading the discussion are Rhonda Phillips and Bruce Seifer, co-authors of the book Sustainable Communities: Creating a Durable Local Economy.
