Food Systems

Agraria will be a center for support of the regional food system. Growing and food safety classes, tool lending, soil amendments, and the development of closed-loop systems could support and foster regional small farmers.  A Farm-to-School partnership with Springfield Public Schools could expand with Agraria support for community gardens in Springfield and Dayton.

Some models we are exploring: Marin County Carbon Project – a farming partnership in California that could be a model of how Agraria partners with other local farms.
