Building WealthWorks Food Value Chains

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

WealthWorks (WW) value chains create deep collaborations between all members of a food system to create eight forms of wealth and ensure a just, locally controlled and inclusive economy. They interconnect rural and urban economies to benefit both. We will draw on the experience of ten WW coordinators at the conference to provide training on the many WW tools. We will learn how to leverage existing food system players by integrating them in a value chain and jointly filling the gaps. Utilize this unique opportunity to learn about WealthWorks.
