  • CCE, EDEN step up in disaster role

    Through its New York Extension Disaster Education Network (EDEN), CCE provides boots-on-the-ground support in times of disaster, including the drought currently gripping a large portion of the state.

    While the consumer appetite for locally grown and sourced foods is at an all-time high, not all farmers have mastered how to access all-important distribution and delivery systems. To help bridge that gap, the Cornell Cooperative Extension Agriculture and Community Development program work team recently hosted a two-day workshop for CCE educators and other agriculture support entities who work with mid to large scale producers across New York State.
