Farm Business Record Keeping for the Global Majority
We are affirming and recognizing that these groups that have been historically oppressed are the global majority. This course invites Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Southeast Asian, Immigrant, and all farmers of color to join a cohort-style learning series in 2022.
Increase your expertise in keeping farm records, improve your knowledge of past and current inequities and barriers in farming, and increase your skills in decision-making and navigating these systems so that all farms and farmers can be successful.
This series will be offered in both English and Spanish. It is asynchronous, meaning that participants can work through the course content at times that work for them. In addition, there will be 11 virtual cohort sessions, 1-to-1 consulting, and peer learning that participants attend to support their skill development and course completion. Please see more details on the series at the What You Will Learn and Registration pages.
