This afternoon workshop examines best practices and lessons learned from several case studies of farming collaborations in NC. The workshop is sponsored by the NC Growing Together Project, an initiative of the Center for Environmental Farming Systems, and is co-facilitated by Carolina Common Enterprise.

Happening from 1 p.m. – 4:30 p.m., “Collaborative Farming in NC: When It Makes Sense to Partner with Others,” examines collaborative farming in NC. This session is open to anyone interested in exploring various types of collaborative farming structures, including cooperatives, limited liability companies, partnerships, corporations, and nonprofit associations.
