Growing Your Farm Markets and Profits: Alternatives to Cash Payments

This conference is for growers selling at summer or winter farmers markets, farm stands, or PYO operations or selling through Community Supported Agriculture; market coordinators and volunteers; or anyone exploring alternatives to cash payments. Besides growing your farm markets and profits using alternative to cash payments, you will also learn about making food accessible to low income families and increasing nutrition for the well being of individuals and families.

There are two sessions at the workshop. Session A is from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. and will deal with Farmers Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) coupons, the new WIC food package, and senior coupons. Session B will be held from 4:30 to 7:15 p.m. and will discuss the Supplementary Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as Food Stamps-EBT.

Interested participants can attend both sessions or just A or B individually.

This workshop is free and open to all.
