ONEONTA – America will face a food security crisis within 20 years and Upstate New York is the solution.
That’s the message Phoebe Schreiner, executive director of the Oneonta-based Center for Agriculture Development & Entrepreneurship (CADE) brought to the third TEDxOneonta Talk Friday, Sept. 13, at Hartwick College.
“I saw the impact of climate change the desertification of agriculture in the rural areas of India and Afghanistan,” said Schreiner, who worked in economic development worldwide for 21 years.
