Join us for an opportunity to learn from each other about how the coronavirus pandemic is impacting small farmers, food producers, our patrons and communities as we face new and unprecedented challenges. This is a chance to share the challenges you are or may face during this crisis, explore new opportunities that present themselves during the pandemic and discuss innovative and resourceful responses underway to keep our communities safe and food secure.
We also want to provide a platform to ask your questions to government and institutional officials, and will have representatives from VADACS, USDA agencies, Virginia Cooperative Extension and others to address your specific concerns.
Registration is at https://www.ext.vsu.edu/events/2020/04/24/smallfarmerslisteningsession. We want to foster farmer-to-farmer connections and come together to make this adversity an opportunity for us all to grow together and serve our communities at even greater levels.
