Rose Skora is an Agriculture Educator with the Kenosha/Racine UW Cooperative Extension. She is an editor of the Farm Fresh Atlas of Southeastern Wisconsin ( http://www.farmfreshatlas.org/southeast/
and available in hardcopy ) which helps connect consumers with local farmers.
She will speak Monday March 14, 6:30 p.m., at Gateway, Racine Bldg., Huron Room (104). All are welcome.
The Steering Committee thought of some topic that might be of interest, and we've submitted them to her in advance. These include -
-Adequacy of regional farm acreage for the region's population
-Impact on agriculture of expected regional population growth and land development
-How can area chain supermarkets be encouraged to carry more local produce
-Impact of tax and subsidy policy on family farms
-Steps and costs to achieving organic certification or organic-similar operation.
If you have any questions, there will surely be opportunity to ask at the meeting, and/or feel free to contact her at her UWEx email address
Hope to see you there!
