Survival Strategies for Small and Limited-Resource Farmers and Ranchers Conference

  • Subject: [cg] Survival Strategies for Small and Limited-Resource Farmers and Ranchers Conference

Hi, Folks!

The ACGA National Office got LOTS of registration brochures and agendas for
this conference.  However, since our office is going through a MAJOR
overhaul (everyone at PA Horticultural Society is moving to a motel for a
month while they redo the office, YOU can get your very own registration
form for this conference at this URL:

http://www.rma.usda.gov/calendar/2001/july.html

Scroll down to July 23-25, 2001 and you'll find the info.

Unfortunately, USDA neglected to put the agenda on the website -- basically
this conference is a networking and workshop opportunity for those who
actually want to make a profit at their agricultural enterprise -- for folks
like me who are strictly non-profit, this conference isn't a priority.
HOWEVER, for those of you who are doing work with youth, low-income folks,
etc and actually are trying to run your garden/farm/growing concern as a
business or trying to train others as the same, this conference will
probably be helpful.

Lots of workshops on risk management, finances, marketing, grants, legal
matters, human resources, etc.  Break-out sessions are by region so you can
network with folks who might actually be able to help you afterwards. :-D

So, check out the website and ask questions if it's relevant to you -- USDA
really does seem to want folks to take advantage of this conference, so take
them up on it!

Dorene Pasekoff, Emergency Office Assistant (and heading back for the hills
of Phoenixville after today when they rip up the carpet here at PHS!!!!!)
