Community Meeting & Dinner with Ken Meter!

The San Luis Valley Local Foods Coalition invites you to an evening with Ken Meter the President of Crossroads Resource Center Minneapolis, Minnesota on Monday, June 20, 2016 for a special community meeting and dinner.

Ken Meter is an economist with a wealth of knowledge, experience, and a powerful message that inspires hope and illumination regarding local food economy. Those who have heard him speak say their understanding of the world will never be the same! He has worked for over forty years with inner city and rural communities to build resilience. He has served as an advisor to the USDA and Colorado State University, among others, has taught economics at the University of Minnesota and the Harvard Kennedy School, and has worked in communities in thirty states, seventy regions, and Canada.

Ken's work in rural areas is based on analysis of food systems, looking at such things as historic and current agricultural production, profitability, patterns of local consumption, and the economic implications of developing/bolstering a local food culture.

Ken has recently been commissioned by Adams State University to conduct a robust local farm and food economy study for the six counties of the San Luis Valley that will include impact of corrective measures being taking to restore and maintain our aquifer. Ken's work in the SLV will be ongoing and will assist in guiding the Sector Partnership Development work initiated by the Colorado Workforce Development Council, focusing on value added agriculture.
