W.A.S.H Conference

W.A.S.H Conference

Saturday, October 1, 2022 - 11:00am

 

W.A.S.H Conference seeks to build the capacity of systematically excluded farmers in the South by plugging them into the supply chain with major brands. W.A.S.H is intended for farmers with existing farming operations who have current demonstrated production capacity. This conference is not for beginners or start-up farms. It is open to all genders and farmers who identify as Black and/or Indigenous. OTA is attending this event.

Twenty farmers will be selected. Farmers will receive a $1000 stipend for their time and input. It will be held in Liberty, North Carolina on October 1. A private pre-conference bonfire event will be held at Green Heffa Farms on September 30, 2022.
 
If interested, please complete this application by August 17, 2022. Farmers selected will be notified by August 31, 2022.
