The future of county food production

How can Tompkins County feed itself in an age of energy-scarcity?  Local expert Karl North writes on this topic for TC Local, a group that is planning for a future without cheap oil.

North's latest article, called "Seeing County Food Production as an Integrated Whole," looks at the historical context and interdependencies among urban, peri-urban, and rural agroecosystems, which he says must be combined to provide for local food needs in a future of declining energy inputs. This is part three in a series (see also Part 1 and Part 2).
