Dates and Times:
Nov. 15 in Augusta from 1-3 p.m.;
Dec. 5 in Brunswick from 1-3 p.m.;
Jan. 24 from 1-3 p.m. via Zoom
Maine Farmer Resource Network invites you to join one of these upcoming free two-hour workshops focused on how farmers communicate about personal money values.
This opportunity is open to mid- to late-career farmers and farm teams in Maine with at least five years experience.
Titled “Communicating about Personal Money Values,” the workshops will introduce farmers to a variety of finance-related themes. Topics will include:
Personal financial health
How farmers’ personal values affect planning for the future
The workshops will be led by Apple Creek Farm’s Abby Sadauckas and business advisor and farm coach Sylvie Boisvert. They will encourage participants to explore personal time management and priorities. Participants will hear from other farmers about their financial decision making, discuss individual and business values, and have an opportunity to talk with other participants. An option of further farm coaching and credit counseling for continued support will be available.
The workshops are sponsored by a grant from Northeast Risk Management Education. Registration is required.
