A Community Farm Roundtable Discussion about Food Systems

The Iowa UrbanFEWS project values sharing our research beyond academia. When Mustard Seed Community Farm, a local non-profit in Ames, Iowa reached out to a PhD student on the team, a roundtable discussion about food systems emerged.

Tiffanie Stone led the discussion - her research with the project is focused on understanding the environment and social impacts of different types of food systems. 

The discussion on September 3 was focused on both the social (equity, resilience, affordability) and the environmental (climate change, water, and energy) aspects of the US food system across scales (national to local). 

We hope to share our research with more community initiatives as we move forward.
