Add comment on:2017 Census of Agriculture: Harvesting Opportunity
by Khubaka, Michael Harris
Harvesting Opportunity: The Power of Regional Food Systems Investments to Transform Communities is a new tool released by the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis that utilizes data points provided by the Census of Agriculture. Last century we began our journey helping to quantify and qualify better opportunity for Black Agriculture producers toward impacting better health outcomes in our communities, in partnership with the USDA/NASS. A 2020 Vision was put forth as a methodology to utilize baseline data to measure the work. The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System is keenly aware of the potential for community development. We are proud to harvest opportunity, expanding "First Fruits of the Harvest in the Farm to Fork Capital of America." 2018 is the 170th Anniversary of the California Gold Rush and look forward participating fully in our 21st Century Gold Rush, mining gold within our neighborhoods throughout our regional communities.
