Food Desert or Food Apartheid?: Small Farms Winter Webinars


Many experts talk about food deserts, but this can be term inaccurate and unhelpful in developing sustainable solutions to community food security. This presentation will explore the historical and present systems that result in an unfair distribution of food access and power as well as discuss a path to move forward.

The 2021 Small Farm Webinar Series gives small producers access to practical tools and knowledge to improve their profitability and sustainability by learning about leading practices on emerging topics in production, management, and marketing.
