Subject: AgSquared learning Community
Description:Big River Farms and AgSquared have partnered to create a series of new app-based record-keeping tools to help farmers of color, immigrant farmers, and other beginning growers keep the records needed for organic certification and to better understand their farm businesses. New Entry Sustainable Farming Project is an outreach partner.
This project is funded by a Conservation Innovation Grant from NRCS, and specifically aims to help farmers make records more useful, regardless of language spoken or whether or not they have reliable computer access. The project also aims to provide a new tool for incubator farms and other farmer service providers to teach effective record-keeping and to more easily communicate with farmers regarding records kept, pest and disease monitoring and control, and other data.
This listserv is to support sharing of best practices, questions, successes and challenges in supporting farmers to adopt the AgSquared tool.
