Casey Hoy, Ph.D.
College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences
Kellogg Endowed Chair in Agricultural Ecosystems Management
I lead the interdisciplinary and WK Kellogg Foundation endowed Agroecosystems Management Program. Agroecosystems include both people and the land. Our program seeks balance between prosperous farms, sustainable communities and healthy environments. I explore interactions between social networks, local economies and agricultural ecosystems from individual to community to landscape scales to build local and regional economies across the rural to urban continuum, starting with food systems. This Center brings together needed expertise across the food system value chain. It brings current science and technology to bear on relocalization of food systems to support healthy communites and healthy ecosystems.
