ALLIANCE FIELD DAY [MS]

ALLIANCE FIELD DAY: FRIDAY, MARCH 18, 2016

Topics will include: “Farm to School Field Day; Featuring the School’s Garden, High Tunnels, Greenhouse, and Pastured Poultry”. They are pleased that the March 18th field day will be hosted by the Claiborne County Career and Technical Center in Port Gibson, MS. They will highlight the school’s agricultural activities and their efforts to prepare and engage young people/future farmers. They will discuss the Farm to School Program, school food service needs; how farmers can serve the Farm to School market; and conduct a networking session with schools, farmers, and others.

“The best way to learn is to watch someone else doing it”.

• Come learn from a local school as it increases quality food production, engages with young people and the community;
• Come learn from experienced farmers and local schools on how YOU can increase sales and marketing opportunities; and
• Come for the “fellowship” and help do something special by working together.

“If we are destroying the environment, can’t make any money, or don’t care about the world around us – we can never be truly sustainable”.

REGISTRATION: 10:00AM. PROGRAM: 10:30AM TO 2:30PM.

There is NO COST to attend this event, but PRE-REGISTRATION is required!
