Tuskegee University to host one of oldest professional farmers conferences in the nation

Submitted by Teri Sumbry

     For the 121st year, agricultural workers and agribusiness stakeholders will gather at Tuskegee University for the Farmers Conference to be held Thursday and Friday, Feb. 21-22 at Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center at Tuskegee University.

    Sessions will focus on problems and solutions for small-scale farmers, landowners and their communities. The first Farmers Conference was held at Tuskegee University on Feb. 23, 1892.

    The objectives for this year’s conference are to share up-to-date information with small-scale farmers and landowners, to create awareness of family health, nutrition issues and resources for rural families, and to strengthen networks and partnerships that address the interests of small-scale farmers and rural communities.

    Events will include a health fair and a youth forum that will cover topics such as social media for making career decisions, Tuskegee research and agricultural careers and internships. 

    Call Vanese Singleton at (334) 724-4440 or email vsingle@.mytu.tuskegee.edu. To learn more online, go to: www.tuskegee.edu/farmersconference
