I work for an IFS project similar to the one described by Maria Magnelli
van Hekken. Our project is called "CISA"--Community Involved in
Sustaining Agriculture. CISA is a collaboration of farmers, community
members, educators, farm support organizations, and a land grant
university working to develop and sustain a thriving food and farming
system in the Pioneer Valley of western Massachusetts.
I am sending you some CISA information and the proceedings of a
conference that we held in March 1995.
