Farmer Advocacy Trainings
This year, NOFA-VT is excited to partner with our friends at Rural Vermont and Action Circles to offer a series of three virtual advocacy trainings as part of our series of Small Farm Action Days, taking place from February through April. During these trainings, farmers, farmworkers, foodies and activists will learn about virtual advocacy and the priority issues for NOFA-VT and Rural Vermont, and prepare to present their own issues to legislators in a series of “Farmer Meet and Greets" with policymakers.
Advocacy trainings will be offered concurrent with a series of "Meet and Greets" (hosted via Zoom), during which farmers will have the opportunity to share their stories and their own policy recommendations with legislators from a wide variety of legislative committees, including the House and Senate Agriculture Committees.
