The University of Minnesota
Southeast Regional Sustainable Development Partnership (SE RSDP)
Experiment in Rural Cooperation (ERC)
We have been serving rural Minnesota for over a decade, supporting out-of-the box ideas, shaping do-able projects, identifying vital partners and nurturing relationships.
We connect University resources with Citizens to support community-based initiatives in agriculture, natural resources, tourism and community development.
Our region includes Dodge, Fillmore, Freeborn, Goodhue, Houston, Mower, Olmsted, Rice, Steele, Wabasha and Winona counties.
We're very involved in Local Foods. Detailed SE Foodshed Planning Initiative Brochure - SEFPI page
