The 2nd National Meeting of Farm Advocates is on!
When & Where: We will meet in (or very near) Hershey, Pennsylvania, on Thursday 9/20 (all day) and Friday (morning) 9/21, immediately prior to Farm Aid 2012 at Hersheypark Stadium on Saturday 9/22. Come for the meeting and stay for the concert - REGISTER TODAY.
Experienced, new and aspiring farm advocates, lay and legal, are urged to attend. Building on last year's unprecedented gathering, this year's focus is on training new advocates, sharpening and sharing skills of experienced advocates, and developing the Farm Advocate Link, the new national farm advocates network taking shape since last year's meeting. The Farm Advocate Link is a project of Farm Aid and RAFI-USA, and a wonderful group of the most experienced and the newest advocates from over 20 farm support organizations around the country currently compose its Advisory Board and New Farm Advocate Committee. The Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture (PASA) will join us in co-hosting this year's meeting. The meeting will also include a special session on hydrofracking and farm advocacy.
Please watch your email for updates. Just like last year, there is no charge for attending the meeting, but we will need to register attendees beforehand.
