Food, Land & Water Project
The Food, Land & Water Project has invited Wisconsin stakeholders of all kinds to come together and have a conversation about Wisconsin's food, land, and water resources and the human demands that affect them. This is a chance to look beyond the present moment, see the big picture, and think about our shared resources in a more systematic and collaborative way. The four key talking points include surface water quality, groundwater quality, groundwater quantity, and the future of Wisconsin working lands.
The ideas, goals, recommendations and strategic actions developed over this two-year process will be presented at the Food, Land & Water Conference to be held on October 16 and 17, 2017. Registration is now open--register by September 25 for early bird pricing! We have an exciting agenda.
