Empowering Mountain Food Systems Listening Sessions

— Written By Keith Wood

Upcoming Listening Sessions for the Far West Region:

We want to hear from you! Please join NCSU Cooperative Extension and The Empowering Mountain Food Systems program for upcoming virtual Farm and Food Business Listening Sessions.

Participants can join Zoom by phone or video chat. To register fill out this registration form or contact Lisa Gonzalez at lcgonzal@ncsu.edu or 828-359-6927.

The sessions will be held on Zoom:

  • June 4, 2020 from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m.
  • June 10, 2020 from 7:30-8:30 a.m.
  • June 11, 2020 from 8:00-9:00 p.m.


The free hour-long session will provide an opportunity for farmers, farm workers, market managers and food business owners to share their questions and concerns about farming, selling products or producing value added products during the COVID-19 pandemic and the phased reopening of North Carolina. You will be able to provide valuable feedback to Extension and EMFS that will help to guide our outreach and educational efforts so that we can meet any emerging needs and continue to support your farm and food businesses during this uncertain time.

If you require additional assistance or accommodations please contact Lisa Gonzalez in advance of the session at 828-359-6927 or lcgonzal@ncsu.edu.
