Weekly Wednesday Webinar: Barbara Shipman

Felicia Bell, NCAT Sustainable Agriculture Specialist at the Gulf States Regional Office in Jackson, Mississippi, has been hosting an online series of workshops, “Weekly Wednesday Workshops.”

In this episode, she talks with Alabama farmer Barbara Shipman of Cottage House, Inc. about Farming Cooperatively.

This workshop series, part of NCAT’s ATTRA sustainable-agriculture program, is designed to help farmers strengthen the resilience of their operations through marketing, the diversification of enterprises, and sustainable production practices. Though the series was begun during the COVID-19 pandemic, the information in these online workshops is pertinent whether or not a pandemic is taking place.
