Facilitating Rural Development in the greater Great Lakes Region: Development of a regional collaborative to support sustainable hops production This webinar will provide an overview of the formation of the Great Lakes Hops Working Group, a collaborative webinar consisting of hop educators and researchers working in the Midwest and Canada under similar climatic conditions. The GLHWG and key stakeholders convened and participated in a facilitated needs assessment to identify areas where hop grower resources are needed and formed expertise teams to address identified needs. The GLHWG continues to share hop resources through monthly conference calls, regional conferences, and multiple collaborative grant-funded projects to improve hop production across the North Central and North Eastern United States.
