education and training
Most people try to solve problems one at a time.
They aren’t taught to see the whole picture--both the complex interdependencies within, and the dynamics and links between different food system actors and sectors. My approach is different: I highlight the strengths, weaknesses, and capacities of the public, private, and non-profits sectors, and then assess the typically unexamined forces and flows between them. This enables me – and my students - to spot innovative, effective business and policy strategies that reside and succeed in this “intersectoral” space. Oh – and I offer more traditional business planning classes for food entrepreneurs, too.
