Centering Workers on Farms 

With Not Our Farm

To kick off MOFGA’s labor management series, this workshop will consist of multiple opportunities for us all to reflect on and discuss the absolute necessity of centering workers in all aspects of our farming operations. We will approach this through the lens of human resources (interviews, onboarding, working training) and by hearing conversations and insights from experienced career farmers who have spent many years working on farms not their own. Join us for what is sure to be a vibrant, joyful and educational workshop that will benefit any operation.

Not Our Farm is a worker visibility and support project that seeks to amplify the voices and experiences of workers on farms not their own. Visit www.notourfarm.org where you can read stories from workers all over the United States, and get a copy of our worker zine – a guide to working on farms, for workers by workers.
