Join us this April for the virtual launch of the Indiana Uplands Food Network with a three part series of COVID-19 related webinars to focus on local food marketing for farmers and direct-to consumer markets.
Tuesday 7 April, 11am-12pm EST (10-11am CST)
Jordan van Everdingen will be presenting about Local Line, a web platform for creating virtual farm markets. Your local market could be up and running by May, in an online setting where farmers manage their own inventory and customers can shop from multiple farms with one checkout experience. Please see their direct to consumer guide for farmers related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Tuesday 14 April, 11am-12pm EST (10-11am CST)
While in-person operations remain risky during this time, markets can find creative ways to continue to support local farmers and get local food to their communities. Join us to discuss some innovative methods being employed in Bloomington using a modified, multi-farm CSA model to sell on a weekly basis to customers wanting to share in the farm harvest.
