This project addresses agricultural production and limited access to markets, both risk areas experienced by Hmong farmers. A Bi-lingual Project Manager will facilitate access to agricultural education using one-to-one training, modeling successful Hmong growers and their produce, visiting farms to model new growing and season extending techniques. Agricultural resource providers, such as River Country Resource Conservation & Development and University of Wisconsin-Extension, and Farm Service Agency will provide models and training content. Participants are twenty-five (25) identified Hmong farmers who live in the Eau Claire region of Western Wisconsin. Hmong farmers will learn how to access available resources. Twenty (20)Hmong farmers will attend one-to-one sessions. Of the 25, 20 will use an effective production method and/or demonstrate use of a new marketing method. Currently, many of the Hmong do not understand the technical information they receive from agricultural resource providers and many do not read or write Hmong or English.
