We are building a California policy platform based on what we hear from young (under 40 counts as young!), aspiring and active farmers—your joys, challenges, and aspirations. Join us in a listening session to hear from fellow young agrarians.
8:30 AM: Registration with coffee and tea
9:00 AM: Introduction to the session and participants and facilitated listening session, with breaks
12:00 PM: Lunch (free) and wrap-up with next steps and introduction to California Farmer Justice Collaborative
1:00 PM: Begin California Farmer Justice Collaborative meeting
The California Farmers Justice Collaborative is a group of farmers and farm advocates striving to create an equitable farming system. If you are a farmer of color and would like to stay for the meeting, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The listening session follows the Rural Justice Summit, which we encourage you to attend at the UC Merced campus.
