The Local Food Economy Game Project

Our goal is to create an exploratory learning environment where folks can experience the social and economic impact of their participation in our local food systems. We want to give folks a real sense of how "Buy fresh, buy local" impacts our local and regional economies.

We are planning to use web-enabled multi-agent simulation software technologies to bring our learning environment 'game' to life.

We're still in the early stages of research, planning and protoyping. So, please, do not be disappointed that the game is not on-line yet. Bookmark this site and keep an eye on our progress. We welcome the involvement of research collaborators, additional sponsors, and anyone interested in promoting participation in our local food economies.
