The Place Value Economy: Growing Local Business through Economic Gardening
April 19 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT
Emerging from a program established 30 years ago in Littleton, Colorado, economic gardening has taken root as a powerful approach to support local economic development. Economic gardening focuses on “second stage” companies—those that are beyond the start-up phase—providing them tools and information to help reach new customers or expand into new markets. This Community Builders webinar will discuss the concepts, benefits, and strategies communities can use to strengthen businesses and highlight successful strategies for economic gardening in rural communities. Eligible for 1 AICP CM credit from the American Planning Association, event #9122141.
