ORGANIZATIONS, SMALL FARM RELATED WEBSITES,
PUBLICATIONS, VIDEOTAPES, with information relevant to small farms
and other materials that can enhance the economic viability and quality of
life within the small farm community.
If you have any information you would like to submit, please
send it by e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org or fax it to 202-401-5179
on or before FEBRUARY 13, 1998. If you have already sent your information to us,
you do not need to resubmit. We have already compiled about 160
pages of information, but we can expand the guide if you have any additional
information, you would like us to consider.
We especially need to make sure our list of small farm organizations
is complete. Some examples of the kinds of organizations that we
want to include are: Land Loss Prevention Project, New
England Small Farm Institute, Small Farm Today, Federation of Southern Cooperatives,
Rural Coalition, Arkansas Land and Farm Dev. Corp, the Small Farm Programs
at the land grant institutions, other universities, and other public
and private sectors. If you have suggestions, please let us know.
We also want to list organizations that are not specifically
small farm organizations but have grants/beginning farmer programs or
information to offer the small farm community. Examples include: Center for Rural Affairs,
Farm Foundation, W. K. Kellogg Foundation, SARE, the
National Agricultural Library, Pennsylvania Farm Link, ATTRA, Missouri Alternatives Center, The
Leopold Center, Metro-Farm, Organic Associations, State Departments
of Agriculture, and others.
