Group: Greener Acres

Welcome

To establish an openly collaborative forum wherein participants:

  • Advance ideas for new or expanded businesses within local food systems among communities and neighborhoods in the Columbus, Ohio area
  • Develop business plans for the more opportunistic entries in the idea portfolio
  • Act upon those business plans that show high value in terms of customer benefit, social responsibility, financial return, and managed risk
  • Contribute to a growing, dynamic, and networked information and knowledge "web" that captures learning experiences from ventures underway and makes them readily available for subsequent endeavors
  • Adapt what works well and what works better to a proliferation of communities, neighborhoods, conditions, and circumstances
