Do you think we can do a better job explaining why we do what we do as farmers? Are you hesitant to engage in conversations with the average consumer? Misinformation abounds, but it’s up to us in the agricultural community to set the record straight.

 

Join us at the upcoming “Productive Conversations” training workshop on Friday, October 26 at the Yankee Farm Credit office in St. Albans to learn how to lead positive conversations about the tough issues surrounding our industry, with a specific focus on water quality and the environment. The workshop will train you to get your point across in all types of settings including in person, in a town hall setting, online or when speaking to a reporter.

RSVP by emailing your name, farm name, and number attending to Catherine Davidson at FarmersWatershedAllianceNW@gmail.com

Workshop sponsored by New England Dairy Promotion Board.
