CDI’s Jonah Fertig is leading a workshop at the 2017 Community Food Systems Conference in Boston.

New American Farmers & Co-op Farm Innovators
New Americans are working together in the Northeast to access land, markets, equipment and infrastructure. These cooperatives are helping to build equity and economic security for New Americans. Through this workshop, you will learn about New American cooperatives, how you can support them and how to start cooperative farms.
Jonah Fertig, Director of Cooperative Food Systems at the Cooperative Development Institute, works with people in the food system, particularly New Americans, to form cooperatives. He co-founded Local Sprouts Cooperative and Maine Farm & Sea Cooperative. He’s on the board of Cooperative Fund of New England and Maine Food Strategy.
