Dreaming New Mexico

“What is an agro-ecoregion? Why is it such an important frame of reference?” Nourish poses these questions to Peter Warshall, Co-Director of Dreaming New Mexico, to better understand how to build a stronger, resilient, local food system. Warshall notes, “[it is important to] provide strategies that are crop and meat specific, and also specific to the dreams of individuals and organizations.” One such strategy is building a regional food hub because they help preserve local farms and generate jobs, as Warshall is witnessing in New Mexico. Warshall believes that local food systems bridge the “nature-deficient disorder” of our society, and sees local prosperity initiatives, such as food hubs, as one of the many solutions.
