Taking “Networked” to a New Level: Cluster Initiatives in Western Maine
Here at WMA, we think cluster initiatives build on the best of networks, community planning and economic development – the success of local agriculture is one good example. In 2011, WMA’s Board used this "white paper" to consider how collaborative cluster initiatives could provide a framework for applying limited resources more strategically, and achieving better economic outcomes for the region. Tell us what you think by commenting on Facebook or emailing email@example.com.
Farm Fresh For ME is a newly established initiative of the Maine Department of Agriculture in collaboration with Western Mountains Alliance and other for profit and NGO’s who are supporting development of Food Buying Clubs throughout Maine.
The ultimate goal of Farm Fresh For ME is to increase the market for small family farms in their local communities while providing nutritious, healthy foods to local Maine families and communities at an affordable price.
