SCALE – Sequestering Carbon, Accelerating Local Economies – combines a new vision for economic prosperity and resilience with tested skills and strategies to help us get there. SCALE focuses on building diverse, resilient communities at the local and regional level, based on local assets and better meeting local needs; growing local “capital” and wealth, in food and farming and other natural resource-based economic sectors, that also rebuild ecological health; catalyzing networks of entrepreneurs, farmers, consumers and advocates that accelerate and deepen healthy local economies. The central purpose of SCALE is to catalyze and accelerate economies which increase community wealth and restore or sustain the ecosystem. The services are designed for community leaders, farmers, small businesses and nonprofit practitioners who are engaged in working towards sustainable economic development initiatives.
