Tuesday, October 19: Farming: A Strategy for Community Resilience

Farms can be an afterthought when communities plan for business development and economic success. With more growers focusing on local markets and/or providing agritourism experiences, it is increasingly the case that what is good for farms is good for towns and cities. Learn how to strengthen ties and support this important business sector.

Presented by: Wendy Wieland, MSU Extension and MSU Product Center
