With a goal of supporting historically underserved farmers in Minnesota and Wisconsin, this webinar is part of a new project led by Renewing the Countryside and the Sustainable Farming Association to build connections between these farmers and resource support. Conservation Connections: Linking New & Underserved Farmers with Conservation Resources uniquely utilizes a "boots in the field" team of Farmer Connectors to assist these farmers to tap into information and opportunities to create a more successful farm business and cultivate soil health. With funding support from the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), this project will provide outreach and support to historically underserved farmer groups including African Americans, Asian, Latino, Indigenous, veterans and beginning farmers. Look for a variety of field days, workshops and outreach over the next two years.
