- identify current efforts in research, teaching and extension that promote practical and profitable responses to urban agriculture challenges; and
- identify ‘ways forward’ to improve climate change research, teaching and extension collaborations across the region in an effort to help build stronger networks among land grant and related institutions in the Northeast.
