Que esta haciendo MIFFS por los agricultores multiculturales?

Uno de los mas grandes y exitosos projectos de MIFFS es el “Programa Productores Multiculturales” financiado por la Oficina de Promocion y Difusion del USDA.  El programa es primeramente implementado en el Sureste y Suroeste de Michigan, destinado a ayudar a los productores de recursos limitados e inmerecidos historicamente, especialmente los agricultores Afro-Americanos e Hispano/Latinos.

Algunos Programas y talleres de entrenamiento incluyen: 

  • Manejo Integrado de plagas (IPM por sus siglas en Ingles).

  • Programa de entrenamiento en computacion y pagina web.

  • Produccion de Arandanos y visita a las fincas.

  • Manejo de negocios y prestamos.

  • Manejo de Invernaderos sin calefaccion.(hoophouse)

  • Seguridad e inocuidad alimantaria.

The Red Productores Hispanos Network evolved out of the Multicultural Network where MIFFS saw a growing need for more workshops and programming to be conducted in Spanish. This network is rooted in Southwest Michigan.

 

Primary activities for this network include:

  • Peer-to-peer demonstration farm visits

  • Integrated pest management workshops

  • Food safety education

  • Computer and web training

  • Blueberry production workshops

  • Business management and loan workshops

 

The Red Productores Hispanos Network is supported by the USDA Office of Outreach and Assistance, Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, USDA Farm Service Agency, and more. Community and national partners are also essential for this network, including Michigan State University Julian Samora Research Institute, National Immigrant Farming Initiative, and more.
