Dear Nahid,

We are excited about this year’s Sustainable Agriculture Conference, and I hope you are too. If you have not had a chance to check out this year’s line up, now’s the time. This year, you will not have to worry about choosing between three or four workshops that are at the same time because attendees will have access to recorded webinars for a year!

If you haven’t yet checked out the program details for the second round of the USDA’s Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP 2), I strongly encourage you to do so below. I know the first round of CFAP might not have been of value to you, but CFAP 2 allows farmers who raised crops on this list to receive a relief payment based on their sales of those crops in 2019. If any of this is dizzying, we’re hosting a free webinar on Wednesday evening that explains CFAP 2 from top to bottom.
