SECOND NATIONAL SMALL FARM CONFERENCE
THEME: Building Partnerships for the 21st Century
The Second National Small Farm Conference will provide an opportunity for
people in the public and private sectors, including community based
organizations, land-grant institutions, small and medium sized farmers to
strengthen collaboration and partnerships to work more effectively with
the small farm community.
Participation is the key to the conference's success. Hands-on workshops,
open forum discussions, and participant-organized networking sessions will
be key features of the conference. Some of the issues that participants
will address include: marketing strategies, value added enterprises, grant
writing, business and entrepreneural skills, farmer-to-farmer and
beginning farmer networks. Representatives from USDA and its partners
will make reports on follow up from the 1996 National Small Farm
Conference held in Nashville, Tennessee; and also on the implementation of
the recommendations made by the National Commission on Small Farms.
The conference will include poster presentations and exhibits.
Solicitation for posters and exhibits will be sent out shortly.
