The lack of locally available infrastructure, supplies, and inputs could be inhibiting sustainable agriculture development in Alaska, and these issues were identified as areas needing research in the 2010 conference on sustainable agriculture in Alaska (WSARE, 2010).
During the Western Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education statewide stakeholder conference mentioned above, training for beginning farmers and gardeners was identified as an important need for creating stronger local food systems that are less reliant on imports from elsewhere (WSARE, 2010).
For agriculture to develop more sustainably, research will need to be more closely aligned with the needs of farmers throughout Alaska, and it must be available and easy to find electronically (WSARE, 2010; Rader, 2011).
The project was also supported by the Western Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (WSARE) Program of the National Institute of Food and Agriculture.
WSARE searches for groups with specific characteristics (e.g., a recent pattern of place, age, and diagnosis associated with illness that is anomalous when compared with historic patterns).
The conference participants included almost 120 farmers, ranchers, agriculture professionals, and others (WSARE, 2010).
