We want to hear from you! Please join NC State Extension and The Empowering Mountain Food Systems program for upcoming virtual Farm and Food Business Listening Sessions. The first session will be held on Zoom on June 4, 2020, from 1-2 p.m. The free hour-long session will provide an opportunity for farmers, farmworkers, market managers, and food business owners to share their questions and concerns about farming or producing value-added products during the COVID-19 pandemic and the phased reopening of North Carolina. You will be able to provide valuable feedback to Extension that will help to guide our outreach and educational efforts so that we can meet any emerging needs and continue to support your farm and food businesses during this uncertain time. To register for the June 4 session or another upcoming session please contact Lisa Gonzalez at lcgonzal@ncsu.edu or 828-359-6927.
