Cultivating Homegrown Economies Session 2: Environmental Sustainability

Friday, August 5, 2022 - 11:00am - 12:00pm
United States
Thank you to everyone who joined us for part one of our three-part webinar on homegrown economies. We hope you can join us for the second session on Friday, August 5.
This series provides an in-depth look at ideas captured in DVRPC’s Cultivating a Homegrown Economy, which was published earlier this year. Each part in the series focuses on one of the three pillars of sustainability: economic, environmental, and social–all of which are integral to a successful approach to cultivating a homegrown economy. 
The August webinar will focus on strategies that can be used to grow environmentally sustainable local economies and will highlight topics such as form-based codes, ecotourism and outdoor recreation, and agritourism and agricultural economies.
Panelists include:
  • Mark Keener, Pennoni: Using form-based codes as a way in which to enable growth and development while protecting a community's unique built environment and local character 
  • Alan Miller, New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection: Building an ecotourism/outdoor recreational economy through long term interventions that leverage partnerships, address social and environmental justice issues, and embrace the authenticity of the Cooper River 
  • Hillary Krummrich, Chester County Agricultural Development Council: The hurdles to, strategies for, and benefits of enabling the growth of an agritourism/agricultural economy
