Community Building Listening Circle for Farmers

Wednesdays, 7:00pm thru July 1, 2020  

The Hudson Valley CSA Coalition and the Hudson Valley Young Farmers Coalition are continuing to co-host virtual gatherings of our community on a weekly basis, Wednesdays at 7:00 pm, for farmers to learn, skill-share, and support each other.

 

Relationships are the basis of healthy communities. In times of crisis, we knit our farm community together through profound respect and deep listening.

This session will give farmers the chance to speak without interruption and with the full listening presence of the group. There is never an obligation to speak and silence is a welcome part of the process. Participants can pass on their turn or hold space for some silence.

The session will begin with a welcome and description of process.  Due to the nature of this session, our meeting will be locked after the first ten minutes.

Prompts will offer opportunities to share and learn about the concerns, stressors and fears we are working through either personally or professionally, as well as positive possibilities and hopes we carry in this uncertain time.

The Farmer's Office: Scenario Planning Webinar

Thu, May 7, 2020, 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM EDT

In normal times, we may want to compare different opportunities – like what if I purchase a greenhouse (and borrow $20,000) or not. What impact does it have on my business and cash flow? In crazy times like now, we’re still evaluating different options (like launching a CSA or doing pop-up farmers markets), though it all feels more urgent. Each opportunity comes with its own costs, revenue potential and risk. So how do you compare them and do it fast?  In this webinar we’ll discuss how to compare different opportunities to decide which direction to take your business.

This webinar is free. Registration is required.
