The newly established Oklahoma Local Agriculture Collaborative invites you to attend their free educational packed workshops in Central Oklahoma. The workshops will take place on October 12th at The Well, 210 James Garner Avenue, Norman, OK.
The agenda is developed to serve beginning agriculture entrepreneurs to established producers looking to take their business to the next level. At the workshops, producers will gain information and resources on how to make their farm a viable business and how to maximize sales beyond the farmers market. There will be representatives from grocery stores, food hubs, restaurants, and other businesses who want to source local agriculture. There will also be lots of opportunities for networking.
A featured workshop to encourage youth in agriculture is the Youth Loans for Agriculture Entrepreneurs session, hosted by Hannah Hart. Hannah was an active 4-H member and received a USDA youth loan that helped her start her cattle operation. The youth loans program is an excellent opportunity for young entrepreneurs in agriculture.
