Supporting Thriving Latinx Farmer and Farmworker Communities
The University of Delaware Extension, as part of the Northeast Farmers, Ranchers Stress Assistance Network (FRSAN) is collaborating on a series of panels focussed on the Latinx Farm and Agriculture Communities. The Latinx community represents an incredibly diverse cross section of cultures, dialects, and backgrounds. Farmers and farm workers come from many countries across North, Central and South America, each with a rich and unique history. This workshop series will prepare agriculture service providers to better understand, connect, and provide outreach to and connect stress assistance and mental health support services to the diverse urban to rural Latinx farmer and farm worker communities who are the backbone of the regional food system.
Each session will feature a robust panel of speakers, group discussion, and practical resources for service providers to make effective referrals and generate opportunities to build authentic relationships with the Latinx community.
Session I: Planting Seeds: Supporting Thriving Latinx Farmer and Farmworker Communities: Learn about the populations of Latinx communities in the various Northeast agricultural sectors (dairy, poultry, specialty crops, others) that represent the diversity, complexity, and considerations of these differences.
