Pathways to Latinx Farm Ownership in California / Caminos a ser propietario de una granja Latinx en California

Latinx (Latino and Latina) farmworkers and farmers play a crucial role in California agriculture, but represent a small percentage of farm owner-operators. At the same time, they are the fastest growing minority group in farm management in the country. As the U.S. contends with an aging farmer population, ensuring the success of beginning Latinx farmers in California will help keep land in production and lift families out of poverty. Based on research led by Hortencia Rodriguez for the National Young Farmers Coalition, this workshop examines the experience of beginning Latinx farmers in California and the network of organizations that work to support them on the path to farm ownership.

Los trabajadores agrícolas y los agricultores Latinx (latinos y latinos) desempeñan un papel crucial en la agricultura de California, pero representan un porcentaje pequeño de los propietarios-operadores de las granjas. Al mismo tiempo, son el grupo minoritario de más rápido crecimiento en la gestión agrícola en el país. Los Estados Unidos afirma con una población de agricultores envejecida, al asegurar el éxito de los agricultores latinos iniciantes en California ayudará a mantener la tierra en la producción así como sacar a las familias de la pobreza. Este taller, basado en la investigación llevada a cabo por Hortencia Rodríguez para la Coalición Nacional de Jóvenes Agricultores (National Young Farmers Coalition) examina la experiencia de los agricultores latinos principiantes en California y la red de organizaciones que trabajan para apoyarlos en el camino hacia el ser propietario agrícola.

Presentado en español con servicios de interpretación al ingles. This workshop will be presented in Spanish with English interpretation.
