Step aside, California. Phoebe Schreiner hopes New York State will become the food basket of the Northeast.
Schreiner, who will speak at the Cazenovia Forum Friday, November 12 at 7 p.m. via Zoom, is executive director of the Center for Agricultural Development and Entrepreneurship. She sees the double whammy of growing populations and climate change as presenting a challenge and an opportunity for growers in the Northeast. She believes that by strengthening food and farm businesses across the state and improving the food supply chain, we can feed the region.
