|Question and Answer Guide for Starting and Growing Your Small Business||
The authors initially developed this guide as a resource for participants in Entrepreneur Express Workshops. Offered throughout the commonwealth, Entrepreneur Express Workshops provided basic information on starting and operating a small business. The VDBA, VCE, VTC, Small Business Development Centers (SBDCs), SCORE, and various local governments and chambers of commerce partnered to develop and implement these workshops. More information on workshop dates, locations, and registration information for these and other events is available at www.vastartup.org.

|Community, Local, and Regional Food Systems (CLRFS) Forum Executive Summary||
Virginia’s food system directly impacts the survival and viability of farms and farmland; the economic development of rural and urban communities; the care, restoration, and resilience of ecological resources such as local waterways; and critical health issues. We use the language of community, local, and regional food systems to broadly define a complex and interconnected set of systems and pathways that comprise sustainable food production, processing, distribution, consumption, and waste management to bring about social, economic, and ecological change that benefits all residents.

|FACILITATION SERIES: The Art of Flip Charting||
The discussion has begun, and words are flowing from each person like the water in a rushing stream. These words must be captured and become the wallpaper plastered throughout the room. It is this process of flip charting that creates the visual summary of key discussion points and provides the group memory that supports the process of a facilitated conversation.

|Food Deserts in Virginia||
In 2012, Delegate Delores McQuinn introduced House Joint Resolution 88 and then in 2013 reintroduced House Joint Resolution 646 to request that the Virginia General Assembly review the issue of food deserts in Virginia. The Honorable William Howell, Speaker of the House of Delegates of the Virginia General Assembly, commissioned Alan Grant, dean of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Virginia Tech, and Jewel Hairston, dean of the College of Agriculture at Virginia State University, to conduct a study of food deserts in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
