Columbia University studies the Catskills foodshed

Urban Design Lab map of the NYC foodshed

The Sullivan County Democrat highlighted a collaboration between Catskills organizations and Columbia University in last week's paper. In the article, "Columbia grad students studying local foodshed," we learn about the meeting of upstate and downstate over food. Catskill Mountainkeeper has organized the connection and will be helping the students on a publication about the agricultural landscape focused on the Delaware Valley in Sullivan County.

The Columbia University Urban Design Lab is behind the work. Have a look at their foodshed initiative.

While most people are inside hiding from the cold this time of year, many sheep and goat farmers are in their barns overseeing the births of kids and goats. The folks at Apple Pond Farm were kind enough to let us take a peek at their new kids on the block!
