General info

NESAWG, a project of the Tides Center, is a 12-state network of over 500 participating organizations.  Together, we unite farm and food system practitioners and allies to build a sustainable, just, and economically vibrant region.

Our region includes Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, Maine, Maryland, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, and Washington D.C.

Our work includes:

  • It Takes a Region annual conference
  • Amplifying the voices of the people transforming the food system
  • Convening practitioners and sharing resources and news to deepen our shared analysis of race and equity on the food system
  • Producing original research and publications
  • Advocating for a just and sustainable food system

NESAWG's annual It Takes a Region Conference brings together farm and food systems practitioners across the 12-state Northeast region to learn, debate, collaborate, and innovate solutions to critical food systems issues. Each year, we look at the trajectory of the food and farm movement and the role our network can play in shaping its future. We offer in-depth working sessions that tackle important questions about our regional food system and how to strengthen it, drawing from the collective expertise and wisdom of conference attendees.
