CC NY EDEN mentioned in EZRA magazine

In the latest issue of EZRA magazine (page 9), NY CCE EDEN was mentioned:

“A recent example of CCE’s responsiveness: Within hours of Hurricane Sandy this fall, it made resources available to victims of the storm. Its New York Extension Disaster Education Network (NY EDEN),, provided farmers, businesses and communities affected by  the hurricane with education on hazardous materials, food safety, diseases and best-practice guides on dealing with long term power outages and agricultural strategies for recovery for growers. NY EDEN also placed extension educators on disaster management and recovery teams.”
