Upcoming Workshop: The Business of Indian Agriculture and Food Sovereignty Assessment
We have one of these workshops going on this week (March 21-23) in Albuquerque, but you can still register to attend our The Business of Indian Agriculture and Food Sovereignty Assessment training in Phoenix June 27-29, 2017. This three-day training combines both topics. The Phoenix session has a “train-the-trainer” focus but is still appropriate for individual producers, farmers, ranchers and others who might not necessarily be thinking of providing training on the topic.
The fee is only $100, which covers the cost of materials and any included meals (breakfast and lunch will be served on all three days). Participants will receive copies of First Nations’ The Business of Indian Agriculture curriculum and Food Sovereignty Assessment Tool.
