October 23, 2013 -- Kathryn Draeger, Statewide Director of the University of Minnesota Regional Sustainable Development Partnerships and Adjunct Professor of Agronomy and Plant Genetics, College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences

The University of Minnesota Regional Sustainable Development Partnerships were formed in the late 1990s to build community-University partnerships to test and apply sustainability principles. In 2008 statewide director Kathy Draeger relocated her family to Big Stone County to practice what she preached. What she has seen is a rekindling of farm-based entrepreneurial ventures, renewable energy production, and growing emphasis on "buy local." Draeger will discuss the opportunities and challenges facing the state's local economies. A limited number of U of M Regional Sustainable Development Partnership books (Northern Winter Greenhouse Manual and From the Farm to Table) will be handed out.
