Planting Seeds: Supporting Thriving Latinx Farmer and Farmworker Communities
June 15 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
The Northeast Latinx community represents an incredibly diverse cross section of cultures, dialects, and backgrounds. Farmers and farm workers come from many countries across North, Central and South America, each with a rich and unique history. This workshop series will prepare agriculture service providers to better understand, connect, and provide outreach to and connect stress assistance and mental health support services to the diverse urban to rural Latinx farmer and farm worker communities who are the backbone of the regional food system.
Learn about the populations of Latinx communities in the various Northeast agricultural sectors (dairy, poultry, specialty crops, others) that represent the diversity, complexity, and considerations of these differences.
