Seeds of Success: Farmer-Researcher Networking Session
October 25 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm EDT| Free
Have you ever wondered how to connect with a farmer or researcher to conduct on-farm research? This Researcher- Farmer Virtual Networking event will highlight the successes and challenges of engaging in farmer-researcher partnerships and focus on building positive outcomes for farmer and researcher collaboration in organic agriculture.
Join us on October 25th at 2pm ET for the first informal virtual networking event held via Zoom, the Seeds of Success: Farmer-Researcher Networking Session.
We will be joined by four speakers that have participated in successful organic research projects funded by USDA NIFA. Two researchers: Julie Grossman and Eric Gallandt, and their farmer collaborators, Seth Kroeck and KaZoua Berry, will share details on their experience and the process of engaging in on-farm research.
The session will begin with a brief introduction on USDA-NIFA organic programs and feature facilitated conversations on the topic of collaborative farmer-researcher projects that will support information sharing and identify possibilities for future research partnerships.
Funding for this series is provided by a cooperative agreement between OFRF and USDA- NIFA to highlight research investments made through both OREI and ORG grant programs.
