BIPOC Farmer Meet-up and Consultation
Thursday December 3 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
Are you a racialized ecological farmer? Join fellow Black, Indigenous and other farmers of colour to network and provide feedback to the organization about how EFAO can better meet the needs of farmers and members who are currently underrepresented in the organization and the ecological farming movement at large.
This meeting is reserved for BIPOC farmers and aspiring farmers and will be led by Angel Beyde, with support from Amy Cheng. EFAO members and others interested in joining are welcome to attend.
To thank those participating in this meeting, we are happy to provide a full conference pass.
RSVP at any point until 7:30AM on Thursday December 3. RSVP by 4pm on Saturday November 28th to receive a free full conference pass.
