Tailoring FSMA Education to the Plain Community - june Webinar
June 9, 2017
11:00AM - 12:30PM
Please join us next Friday, June 9th from 11:00am-12:30pm for our June Webinar, "Tailoring FSMA Education to the Plain Community." This webinar will feature a presentation and discussion on adapting educational programing, with the Produce Safety Alliance Grower Training as a specific example, to meet the needs of the plain community. Amish and Mennonite produce farmers do not use the internet as source of farming information and they do not generally belong to formal farming organizations. Therefore, it is critical to develop personalized delivery methods to meet these educational needs.
