Leadership WI + Food Systems Webinar

November 30, 2017

In September, Leadership Wisconsin took a group of community leaders and UW-Extension educators to the San Francisco Bay Area to learn about food systems and community leadership. The group met with farmers, entrepreneurs, and leaders who are impacting the food system. The webinar provided an overview of the presenters’ experiences, what they learned about food systems models and organizations, leadership, and potential implications for work in Wisconsin.
