CEFS' Creamer to speak at USDA forum

Nancy Creamer, director of the Center for Environmental Farming Systems, will participate Thursday in the USDA Agricultural Outlook Forum 2011 in Washington, D.C. In a session titled Promoting Sustainable Agriculture Through Regional Food Sheds, Creamer will speak about North Carolina’s leadership in building local food economies.

CEFS is a partnership of N.C. State University, N.C. A&T State University and the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Sciences. The center promotes education, research and extension efforts in sustainable agriculture. CEFS also developed The 10% Campaign to encourage North Carolina consumers to spend 10 percent of their food dollars locally.
