collaboration for mutual aid
Hudson Valley greenhorns, take note.
Collaboration for Mutual Aid: Feb. 25th 6-9:30 PM.
New small farms are proliferating here in the Valley. In the coming years, we may face some direct-marketing challenges, but also more potential to work together for mutual benefit. What do we need to capture more value? How can we tap the opportunities arising? What do we want for our farms?
