Launched in October 2012, the San Diego Food System Alliance is a voluntary, multi-stakeholder coalition launched by Ag Innovations and is now one of the state’s most successful food policy councils. Ag Innovations, working with multiple local partners, helped to fund, convene, and facilitate the first two years of this coalition. It provided the process for the group to establish its membership, governance, action agenda, and ultimately its capacity to operating as an independent, member-led leadership group. Creating local capacity for change is one of Ag Innovations’ core skills and offerings.
“While working with CRWFS I have been very pleased to witness a keen and reasoned approach to California’s water dilemma, long an elephant in the room.”
