Webinars related to food systems and/or community development.

The Center for Agriculture and Food Systems at Vermont Law School (CAFS) partnered with the Farmers Market Coalition (FMC) and the Northeast Organic Farming Association of Vermont (NOFA-VT) to create this Toolkit, with support from the United States Department of Agriculture National Institute of Food and Agriculture (USDA/NIFA).
 
 
Topic: "Using Checklists for Risk Management at Farmers Markets"
 
 
Developing checklists for your farmers market is a great risk management strategy. Checklists are one way that markets can actively address legal risks while also providing your market with a record that you have done your due diligence, should an issue ever arise. Many markets may benefit from developing three types of checklists:  1) Market Day Checklist,  2) Annual Legal Check-up, and 3) Annual Vendor Communications.
 
 
For more information on managing legal risks at your market, check out the risk management section of the Farmers Market Legal Toolkit by visiting www.farmersmarketlegaltoolkit.org.

The NH Food Alliance is so excited to have our next webinar about New Hampshire Eat Local Month, celebrated annually in August!

 

The July webinar will take place on July 25th from 12:00-1:00PM. Our presenter on this topic is Jen Risley, the Executive Director of Monadnock Buy Local since 2009. She has long-term experience promoting local food and farms, and also has worked for the Monadnock Food Co-op in marketing. We can’t wait to learn from her experience. 

 

This webinar is completely free, and you can register easily using Eventbrite.

 

Although this month’s topic is about NH Eat Local Month, participants from other areas of the country can expect to gain valuable insight into how to promote their own area’s local products! NH Eat Local Month is all about creating inspiration to eat more local food throughout the year, and to help people gain knowledge about where their food comes from. All of our webinars end with an interactive Q&A session so you can get more involved.
