Iowa State Extension – Local Food Team

Their mission is to support resilient food systems and healthy communities through research, education, and community engagement with diverse partners.

Regional Food Systems Working Group (RFSWG)

A regional food system supports long-term connections between farmers and consumers while helping to meet the health, social, economic and environmental needs of communities within that region.

Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture

The goals of the Center have been to identify and develop new ways to farm profitably while conserving natural resources as well as reducing negative environmental and social impacts.

Practical Farmers of Iowa (PFI)

PFI works at strengthening farms and communities through farmer-led investigation and information sharing.

Women Food & Agriculture Network

WFAN exists so that women can give each other the information, connections, and encouragement they need to be effective practitioners and supporters of sustainable agriculture and healthy localized food systems.
