Meet the Innovator

Suzan Erem is the executive director of Sustainable Iowa Land Trust (SILT) in West Branch, IA.

Suzan will speak on SILT's "Circle our Cities" campaign to ground local food systems in permanent local farms. The goal of the campaign is to surround 10 Iowa cities with 10 permanent table food farms in 10 years, and to encourage other cities to learn from and adopt the approach. Learn how the SILT model takes land speculation and mortgage interest out of the equation for the benefit of future healthy food farmers. 

This multimedia webinar will provide ample opportunity for interactive learning with the featured speaker.
