Listening sessions

The free hour-long session will provide an opportunity for farmers, farmworkers, market managers, and food business owners to share their questions and concerns about farming, selling products, or producing value-added products during the COVID-19 pandemic and the phased reopening of North Carolina. You will be able to provide valuable feedback to Extension and EMFS that will help to guide our outreach and educational efforts so that we can meet any emerging needs and continue to support your farm and food businesses during this uncertain time. If you require additional assistance or accommodations please contact Lisa Gonzalez in advance of the session at 828-359-6927 or

The sessions will be held on Zoom:

  • June 4, 2020, from 1–2 p.m.
  • June 10, 2020, from 7:30–8:30 a.m.
  • June 11, 2020, from 8–9 p.m.
