Description

Farming & Conservation Opportunities For Hispanic, African American, and Other Underserved Farmers

Hibernation is over!

Capital RC&D and the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service invite you to come and start a fresh growing season with new tools, ideas, and support from your production and conservation team. Learn about opportunities for farmers from farmers, financial assistance programs, grants, land access, and that your voice matters. Meet your partners in production and conservation that are willing to give you a hand. All farmers are welcome to attend, and registration is just $10 and includes lunch. If cost is a barrier to your participation, contact Abigail at 570-415-6463 or abigail.appleman@usda.gov for scholarship options. Seating is limited. Registration ends April 5. Intérpretes estarán presentes.
