Curious, enthusiastic, or skeptical about USDA programs for farmer support?

Farm Bill Programs: One-Stop Workshop, a collaboration between the Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association (OEFFA), Rural Action, Ohio State Extension, and USDA, is a FREE virtual webinar and engagement session to provide more information about USDA programs and services.

The workshop is intended to highlight how farmers may utilize USDA programs to improve their operations. Participants will have the opportunity to engage with and learn more about the experiences of Ohio farmers who have accessed various resources in breakout sessions.

Participants will leave with detailed information about program and partnership opportunities. The Farm Bill Programs: One-Stop Workshop is participant-driven and is intended to center the goals and challenges of farmers of color, beginning, veteran, and additional marginalized farmers. All are welcome to engage.

Registration will be capped at 50 people. Additional participants will be added to the waitlist in the event that capacity changes. A recording of the webinar will be available after the program for anyone to view.

Learn to use narrative and story in educational and healing settings, guide dynamic personal narrative that can be staged to process trauma and drama, and create stories that guide us to the right relationship with the land. Participants will take a deep dive into the landscape as they practice effective techniques such as story gathering, land-based activity reflections, the story form report, theater games, and more to incorporate into their own life and work. Participants will leave with a portfolio of their own learning and receive a certificate of completion.
