Farmer-to-Farmer Potluck: Planning for Now and the Future
Wednesday, November 1st, 20176-9 PM Auburn Veterans Hall, 100 East St, Auburn
Join us for a potluck dinner and networking with fellow Placer/Nevada farmers and ranchers. Take the opportunity to learn from other local producers about how they kept their operations going while coping with serious illness/injury, death of a partner, or succession to the next generation. Given events in the past couple of years in our ag communities, we may not really want to talk about it, but we should be thinking about it and making plans.

Registration is required. Sign up at http://ucanr.edu/survey/survey.cfm?surveynumber=21906
It’s free, but it is a potluck! We will provide tableware, soft drinks. And coffee.
Bring a dish to share - last name:   
A - I Salad or Side dish         J - S Main dish           T - Z Dessert
Local is always best!
