Farm Business Service Provider…Network?

It’s past time to report on this great new network that seems to be forming.  Based on the purpose they’ve served over the past year, the meetings are currently titled “Farm Business Service Provider Meeting.”  The meeting is organized through Hannah Grimes and serves as a “Quarterly roundtable for organizations working to strengthen farm businesses and infrastructure in the Monadnock Region.”  CGC has been welcomed by the group and has attended two meetings over the past several months.

At the most recent meeting CGC attended, we were a part of a broader discussion about the group’s purpose.  Based on the evolution of this informal collection of people working on various aspects of our local food system, the group is asking important questions about our food system’s future.  For example, should we officially broaden our scope (and with it our name) to one that encompasses both the commercial and community aspects of the food system?  The question also arose as to whether a formalized network would be an even more effective way of collaborating.  Exciting!  Stay tuned as this process unfolds!
