Conference for minority, limited resource farmers

Small, minority and/or limited resource farmers will have their choice of more than 50 practical sessions, six half-day field trips and opportunities to network, learn and share with other farmers at the Southern Sustainable Agriculture Working Group conference in Louisville, Ky., Jan. 25-28.

“Small, minority and/or limited resource farmers or farming couples desiring to attend the SSWAG conference should not let lack of finances stand in their way of doing so,” says Henry English, Small Farm Program director at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff.

“Practical Tools and Solutions for Sustaining Family Farms” is the theme of the conference, which attracts more than 900 farmers and advocates. Interested farmers should contact Stephan Walker, UAPB Extension associate, at (870) 575-7237; fax: (870) 575-4682; e-mail or call Henry English at (870) 575-7246.
