The Oklahoma Association of Conservation Districts will feature their Conservation and Agriculture Reach Everyone (CARE) initiative. The project vision is to provide information, training, funding opportunities and technical assistance to socially disadvantaged farmers and ranchers. The program also works to help the agriculture community learn about the unique barriers minority producers face.
In New Hampshire, the Cheshire County CD has hosted a series of community forums and market developments to strengthen connections between the broader public and their vibrant agricultural community. One resulting effort is the Monadnock Farm and Community Connection, a region-wide coalition.
These popular webinars, held on the third Thursday of each month, are sponsored by The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company in partnership with the NACD Urban and Community Resource Policy Group.
