#AskEFC!
Tweet your questions for the Mayors with the hashtags #askEFC #Cultivate 2017!  Some examples include: How can our region thrive as a prosperous, growing place, with resilient local and regional food systems? How do we preserve land for agriculture and food systems as our region grows and changes? How can we better “cultivate connections” between our communities?
