Federation of Southern Cooperatives Training Workshop

Farm Foundation supported a training workshop scheduled in conjunction with the Federation of Southern Cooperatives annual meeting and 35th anniversary celebration, Aug. 17, 2002, in Birmingham, Ala. The training workshop covered such topics such as sustainable agriculture, land retention, and a review of the farm bill outcomes and its economic impact on small and limited resource farmers.

The Federation of Southern Cooperatives works with small and limited resource farmers throughout the southeastern region. Its mission is to develop self-supporting communities with programs that increase income and enhance other opportunities, to assist in land retention and development, to strive to protect the family farmer and to ensure that the African-American farmer remains an integral part of U.S. agriculture. The Federation provides services, resources, technical assistance and advocacy to its membership of cooperatives and credit unions and their individual member families.
