What Can Be: Regional Food Systems Video Story from Warren County, NC

This video outlines the economic redevelopment project of Working Landscapes in Warrenton, North Carolina, telling the story of two rural leaders who moved home to Warren County to contribute to their local economy by building a small processing center. The video focuses on this project as an example of the larger regional context of food system development, and brings in experts from UNC’s School of Government to discuss the economic impacts of building regional food systems.

Local and regional governments are invited and encouraged to use this video in their own agricultural economic development efforts with appropriate credits! With questions about the video, please contact Robyn Stout, NC 10% Campaign Coordinator, at
