Webinar: African American Farmers: Stress Issues and Solutions

All farmers, ranchers, and other agricultural workers face stress related to their occupations. However, African American farmers have additional sources of stress not faced by other agricultural producers. Some of the main topics for this webinar include

  • a brief summary of stress sources common to all farmers
  • unique stressors that African American farmers face
  • suggestions and resources that could be helpful to African American farmers facing stress
  • recommendations that professionals should keep in mind when working with African American farmers


The presenter will also emphasize

  • getting to know the African American farmers you work with and understanding their unique histories
  • the importance of being sincere and trustworthy: the way you interact can determine if you become part of the solution or add to the problems


Our Presenter:

John Jamerson is founder and project manager of Legacy Taste of the Garden LLC and Legacy Farming and Health Group headquartered in Lyles Station, Indiana, a historic African American farming community. Legacy’s aim is to close the gap between local producers and the local community to help support the community’s economic vitality. They seek to help empower individuals and communities to become self-sustaining and economically sound through education, networking, and resources to promote a healthy, sustainable, empowered life.

A question & answer period will follow the presentation. Register at http://www.agrability.org/online-training/upcoming/
