I would like to share with you an updated In-Service Training flyer detailing the four sessions that will take place at the Frontiers of Sustainable Agriculture: Sustainable Strategizing –A Glimpse Ahead training to be held May 14th & 15th. We have also expanded this training to include other local service providers and growers. Please share with your contacts.
Travel support is available for county faculty who attend the entire training. We are also able to provide funding for county faculty interested in renting a van to transport growers and/or other local service providers with them. The training is a two-day training and registration is free –any growers and/or service providers who attend would be required to pay for their own overnight lodging. Please contact me as soon as possible if you are interested in taking advantage of this opportunity.
We hope to see many of you in attendance!
