Sessions in the Institutional Change track:
Bridging the Culture Gap and Building Productive Relationships

How Institutions Change
CSARE Presenters: Duane Dale and John Gerber
On Saturday afternoon, the primary interest groups break-out sessions will
include 1) for institutional change advocates: putting the institutional
change training into practice; and 2) for producers: some nuts and bolts in
conducting farm-based research (design, data gathering and management, and
interpretation of results).
CSARE will also be sponsoring two workshops on proposal writing.
The first session will focus on how to develop good projects, and use A
Guide to USDA and Other Federal Resources for Sustainable Agriculture and
Forestry Enterprises to discuss how to identify appropriate funding sources.
During the second session there will be two concurrent breakout sessions
about writing fundable proposals. One will focus upon effective farmer
initiated grant proposals (particularly to the SARE program). The other
upon a broad range of proposals.
(CSARE Presenters: Margaret Krome, Cris Carusi, Teresa Maurer)
