Giv­ing food inno­va­tors a place to put down roots

There are few things as impor­tant as the con­tin­ued progress that lets us feed a grow­ing pop­u­la­tion. And few places are as well equipped to do it as the region, includ­ing Cen­tral NY, the Fin­ger Lakes, and the South­ern Tier. In part­ner­ship with Cor­nell University’s Cen­ter for Region­al Advance­ment, we devel­oped mar­ket­ing sup­port for the Grow-NY Food and Ag com­pe­ti­tion and showed the world that great things grow in NY, includ­ing the con­ver­sa­tion and inno­va­tion that address the com­ing cli­mate cri­sis and help to feed the world.
