Anything I can do to help by way of advice, I’d be happy to do so. I’m currently doing my Masters research on local food systems and am looking at regions that have fairly well-developed systems. Kingston’s local food locator is great:
I’m not sure if it’s updated regularly though – it was created by the local chapter of the National Farmer’s Union when they had funding, but funding has dried up. I think finding someone who’s able to maintain and update the site will be the biggest challenge, but certainly a worthwhile one!
reach me at: firstname.lastname@example.org any time or pass my info along to anyone else that might need some input/brainstorming help
