This two-part workshop will take place on Tuesday, November 19 and Tuesday, December 3 from 8:30 to noon at the Bushel Collective in Delhi. It will be hosted by Jeffrey Potent, Adjunct Professor, Columbia University, and leaders in the Catskills local-food movement.
They will introduce sustainable business practices and guide participants to assess current adoption and integrate sustainability into business plans and day-to-day operations.
Participants will learn how to reduce environmental impacts, improve material and energy efficiency, and incorporate sustainable product attributes into company image and marketing.
Presented by Transition Catskills and funded by an education grant from the Catskill Watershed Corporation, the training is free and open to Catskill farmers, value-added processors, aggregators, restaurateurs and retailers who see value in operating sustainably and would benefit from additional information, perspectives and networking.
