Abstract

Northern Iowa Food & Farm Partnership partnered with EMBARC (Ethnic Minorities of Burma Advocacy and Resource Center) and AmeriCorps VISTA to create and implement an eight week, Community Producers Workshop (CPW) targeted at new comer Immigrant women in Waterloo. The workshop built on the production skills of the participants in order to connect them with available markets and institutional buyers in the area. Opportunities for networking for producers and local food buyers were also held and feedback from attendees will be used to help guide future opportunities that offer more individual presentations and one-on-one conversations.
