Cazenovia Forum Lecture Series

America Needs a New Foodshed;
New York is the Answer

Phoebe Schreiner

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.

Schreiner has 20 years of global-to-local experience leading social and economic development programs around the world--from the former Soviet Union, to the Middle East, to South Asia, and to New York--including with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the United Nations, the Open Society Foundations, among others.

She is a currently a member of Congressman Antonio Delgado’s Agricultural Advisory Committee for the 19th Congressional District, the Otsego County Agriculture and Farmland Protection Committee, the Farm-to-School Task Force of Delaware County, the Otsego County Energy Task Force Sub-Committee on Economic Development, Technical Committee of the Northeast Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education, the Schoharie County Land Trust, and Gilboa Historical Society.
