The Sustainable Agriculture Program of
Adelante Mujeres did ensure that Latino producer of specialty crops understood
the risks inherent in their operations. Through sustainable agriculture and
farm business courses, farm visits, phone calls, individual meetings, access to
land, and access to market we provided them the tools they used to manage
production, marketing and financial risks.
22 Latino producers received production
risk management training through the sustainable agriculture course
9 Latino producers received financial risk
management training in the Farm Business course.
We are in the process of refining the culturally
specific training manual. The way we are making sure it is appropriate for the
audience we are targeting, is that we are using the draft of the manual in our
current classes as a way of testing it. We are asking students’ comments,
suggestions and additions so that when published for the Coalition members, it
will be useful and practical.
