Alliance Field Day

March 17 @ 10:00 am - 2:30 pm

Free

Hosted by the Alliance for Sustainable Agriculture Production: The March 17th field day will be led by the Small Farm Training Center (SFTC) near Picayune, Mississippi in Hancock County. As a hands-on working mini-farm and training center, SFTC has pioneered production and marketing strategies that have attracted more than 80 student apprentices in two years. Student farmers learn to grow, cook and market healthy organic produce on this six-acre mini-farm. The farm is part of the New Talavan Community and operated by Terry and Elicia Sheldon.

Major topics will include: “Growing the Growers in Mississippi – Addressing the Disparity between Supply and Demand for Organic Produce”.

There is no cost to attend the event, but preregistration is required. To register or for more information, please email keithmdp@yahoo.com.
