Details of the Agricultural Symposium
When: July 27th from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Where: At the UF/IFAS Mid-Florida Research and Education Center (2725 S Binion Rd, Apopka, FL 32703).
What: According to the blog, the Agricultural Symposium will cover information concerning “rules and regulations” and “cost share programs. These programs provide technical and financial assistance to farmers increasing the environmental and economic sustainably of their operation — such as installing equipment that conserves water. The symposium will also cover best management practices, tax exemptions for agriculture, loans, insurance, water use permitting and more.”
Why: In the blog, Morgan Pinkerton, an event organizer and a sustainable agriculture and food systems agent with UF/IFAS Extension Seminole County, said, “One of the goals of UF/IFAS Extension is to connect the agriculture industry with the resources they need to feed our communities, conserve natural resources and run successful businesses. The idea behind this event is to bring folks together and invite the various agencies involved in agriculture rules, regulations, and cost share opportunities and give stakeholders a chance to ask questions in an open format and learn from one another too.”
