The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

HomeGrown: Sustainable Agriculture and Local Foods in Central Minnesota.

Stephenson, Emily.

The Sustainable Farming Association produced a film showing how food, nutrition, agriculture, energy, and economy are linked to the health and vitality of the local economy, environment, and the people who inhabit it. The program features local producers, activists, and entrepreneurs who are pioneering and implementing sustainable technologies and systems to enable themselves and others to live more empowered, rewarding, and sustainable lives. The message: sustainable living - whether as a rural farmer or a semi-urban consumer - is possible, profitable, fun, healthy, and creates rewarding lifestyles that benefit people, their communities, and the environment. Lakeland Public TV's Through the Lens" independent TV production program provided the perfect vehicle to carry the idea forward. The program can be viewed at: http://www.lakelandptv.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=35&... "
