A few great opportunities I thought to mention!
First, the USDA just came out with, "Building Sustainable Farms, Ranches,and Communities: A Guide to Federal Programs for Sustainable Agriculture, Forestry, Entrepreneurship, Conservation, Food Systems, and Community Development." Looks like an amazing resource for farmers looking to get assistance from the federal government for their farms. Check it out at: https://attra.ncat.org/attra-pub/summaries/summary.php?pub=279
Second, Slow Money is having their annual National Gathering this week (Mon night - Wednesday, Eastern Time) in Louisville, Kentucky. Fortunately, they are live streaming the conference. If you have any interest in watching their presentations (includes Wendell Berry, Vendana Shiva, Gary Naban), please go here: https://slowmoney.org/
