The US Department of Agriculture is coming onboard!

“This project seeks to demonstrate that locally grown New York agricultural products can be distributed from upstate New York farms to urban centers downstate using intermodal
transportation systems as an energy efficient approach, establishing a Hudson River Foodway Corridor.”

  1. As the former Federal Chairman of the short sea shipping cooperative program – now the American Marine Highway – I see HarVest as a great grass roots opportunity to connect organic farmers in New York and Connecticut with environmentally sustainable transportation to bring their goods to market. We need to extend this program into Long Island Sound and include a tri-state initiative to slowly build this program.

    The Connecticut Maritime Association will support the program – see http://www.cmaconnect.com as will e3 – see – http://www.enereducation.com or e3forum on Facebook.

    If HarVest requires any assistance please do not hesitate to contact me at the email address provided.
