Cultivating a Community-Based Food System is a relational database for community food systems in Elkhart County, Indiana, the Michiana region, and beyond.

One purpose of this database is to support the Elkhart County Foodshed Initiative.  Elkhart County is one of two pilot communities in Indiana selected by Purdue Extension to roll out their Rebuilding Your Local Food System program.

This database is still a work in progress - we're building it as we go, so the many current omissions do not indicate a lack of awareness or support.  If you have questions or input for this project, please email
