2nd Annual Hispanic Farmer and
After a successful start last year, we are looking forward to featuring the contributions of Hispanic farmers, agricultural professionals, and young Latinas and Latinos involved and seeking a future in agriculture.
The COVID-19 outbreak has challenged farmers, agricultural professionals, and the agriculture sector overall. The impact on Hispanic farmer livelihoods and purpose, food security, food supply chain, and agricultural market systems are subjects that we plan to discuss during the 2nd Hispanic Farmers and Agricultural Professionals Symposium. COVID-19 is a global, state, county, and local problem. Government organizations are increasing the use of digital tools to maintain outreach efforts and introduce innovative methods to provide technical assistance to farmers from a distance. The pandemic presents many challenges to outreach, but it also creates opportunities to serve Hispanic farmers better and prepare for new agricultural needs.
This year, Nolo Consulting’s team developed and implemented a Champions in Conservation Learning Network (CCLN). The Champions in Conservation Learning Network is a project intended to establish a cadre of trained bilingual leaders and champions in conservation and mentor (coach) producers and agricultural professionals who will become multipliers and promoters of conservation in agriculture. You will have an opportunity to hear presentations from our team, instructors, coaches, and participants on the topics and lessons learned during the CCLN.
Additional ZOOM Webinar presentations and discussions include the following:
Presentation from Mr. Pepito Fabre (Bananera Fabre), farmer and owner
The Impact of COVID-19 and the Influence on Agriculture: Perspective’s panel from Hispanic Farmers and Agricultural Professionals
The University of Puerto Rico, Mayagüez Campus, Young Hispanic Conservation Project Presentations
This is a free and bilingual symposium. We are looking forward to meeting you and have you join our learning network of Hispanic farmers, agricultural professionals, and future young leaders.
