Bay Area Food Economy White Paper

In the fall of 2017, SAGE and its collaborator American Farmland Trust (AFT) published a new analysis, “The Bay Area Food Economy: Existing Conditions and Strategies for Resilience”.Recognizing the integral role of farms and food businesses in the Bay Area, SAGE and AFT have produced this report outlining strategies for strengthening the region’s agriculture and food cluster as a critical pillar of the region’s economic prosperity, environmental sustainability and vibrant cultural life. The Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) commissioned this report as a part of the region’s Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS). Food and agriculture-related strategies and actions suggested by SAGE are now included in the final draft Economic Action Plan. Click here to read the press release for the White paper.
