Are there limits to local thinking?
What is the relationship between rural and local?
What is the role of local knowledge in an age of globalization?
Join us at Sterling College in Craftsbury Common, Vermont from June 18th - 20th for Is Local Enough? Promises and Limits of Local Action to explore these questions as well as the developing dialogue between local and global concerns as it applies to economy, agri culture, history, food, culture and rural identity.
