Who uses the Sourcebook?

The Sourcebook is a reference for students, Extension professionals, members of the North American Food Systems Network, NGOs, public agencies, planners, researchers, community activists, and others.

How are the Sourcebook and our listing promoted?

The directory is promoted in the Journal of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Community Development (JAFSCD), by the North American Food Systems Network (NAFSN), on various food security and sustainable agriculture listservs, and at conferences. We regularly promote the Sourcebook on the following:

  2. Websites for JAFSCD, NAFSN, and the Lyson Center, and their respective Facebook pages, along with the websites of dozens of partner organizations.
  3. Every JAFSCD Article Heads-up (regular email messages to readers) will have a promotion of and link to the Sourcebook.
