Hello Farm to School partners! I'm excited to share info about the upcoming Level 2 Food Safety Training dates and locations. Please share this information with your networks.
This training is aimed at small to mid-sized farmers, but we are also inviting Extension Agents and farmers market managers to attend as well. Priority will be given to farmers, since our primary goal is to increase the number of GAP certified farms in the state. But if you are an Agent or market manager interested in learning how to create an on-farm food safety plan geared toward the USDA Harmonized GAP audit, please register. Attached is a flyer detailing the dates, locations, and training topics.
July 17 – Little Rock
July 24 – Mountain Home
Topics include: developing an on-farm food safety plan, getting ready for a GAP audit, and farm to school market opportunities
Please register and then pass this along to your networks. Don’t hesitate to reach out with questions using my contact info below.
P.S. We will be releasing Level 3 info soon, but tentatively hold August 14 and 21 on your schedules.
