NABC's Economic Opportunities for Latino Farmers

  • Skagit County Fairgrounds Virginia St Entrance, Bldg A Mount Vernon, WA 98273 (map)

Come listen and learn from two amazing Minnesota Latino cooperative success stories. Cooperativa Agua Gorda, a cooperative owned by five farmers, has grown its farm business from Β½ acre of land (2012) to 15 acres (2017), and annual sales from $6,700 to a projected $80,000. Shared Ground Co-op is a cooperative of three Latino-owned farms and two Caucasian-owned farms. By working together they achieved sales of $330,000 in 2016. The workshop will also feature local business development assistance providers including NABC, Viva Farms, Economic Development Alliance of Skagit County, and WSU Skagit Extension.  
Latino farm families are invited to this community event. There will be games and activities for the hijos and an enchilada dinner. Yes, there will even be a piΓ±ata! March 31, 2018  Register at:  LATINO FARMER OPPORTUNITIES
