Farmworker Presentation Resources

About these Resources for Farmworkers

The basis for the case studies is quantitative research conducted with farmworkers, medical providers, and farm service providers. SUNY Morrisville’s Agriculture Business students, under the direction of their Professor, Sheila Marshman, Ph.D., conducted the research. Maria Pippidis, an Accredited Financial Counselor, Financial Fitness Coach and Extension Educator with the University of Delaware Extension, utilized her 30 years of experience in teaching personal financial management to construct the case studies. Farm business owners and farmworker service providers reviewed the material to ensure the cultural competencies of those who come to the United States were met. Translation of the materials was provided by Maria Gorgo, Extension Educator, Penn State Extension and Dra. Ivette Ruiz of Healing By Growing Farms.

Beginning Farmer and Land Access

Accessing Farmland Together webinars for Services Providers and Producers

These two webinars hosted by Land for Good offer information on group land access concepts and how to use a new educational tool Accessing Farmland Together, that describes methods for farmers to lease or own farmland as a group. Accessing farmland as a group can solve some land access obstacles and offer multiple benefits. Group tenure can improve farmers’ chances of success, quality of life, social connections, and mental health.
