On the Road Again: National Small Farms Conference

This week my daughter Sarah and I are traveling with the Gullah Farmer’s Cooperative and the South Carolina State University 1890 Extension Service to attend the National Small Farms Conference in Virginia.  We left our home on St Helena Island Tuesday morning to meet the other members of the travel group and board the bus in Orangeburg on the campus of SCSU where we began our journey to Virginia Beach.

We are among a group of small minority farmers from the state of South Carolina who are affiliated with the 1890 Extension Service of South Carolina State University.  Each 1890 Extension cluster is represented by a small group of farmers from the area it represents and serves. We appreciate the opportunity to attend this conference and represent our community. 

From bottom to top the photos represent our travel from,just outside of Orangeburg to our arrival in Virfina Beach and the conference center. Now on to attending the sessions, networking and learning more about our work.
