Overview

Learn about some of the problems facing communities in Northern New England, and the underlying issue of ecosystem services. Explore how thinking holistically and using a systems perspective can provide a new way forward for communities. While planning documents may take a systems perspective, land use regulations seldom do. This integrated approach provides for the regeneration of lost ecosystem services such as food production, and the resulting projects will help your community become more adaptive and resilient over time. Participants will then be charged to work collaboratively on a hands on exercise. This is an opportunity to apply our collective professional knowledge to create regulatory solutions that encourage food security.
