Stories from the field: Small Farms and GAP Audits

A Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs) audit may seem like an impossible goal for a small scale farmer and an equally hard topic to teach for produce safety educators. Two farmers, Roberto Meza from Emerald Gardens in Colorado and Nathan Vannette from Growing Green Family Farms in South Carolina, and a former GAP certified farmer turned produce safety educator, Kim Butz from the Carolina Farm Stewardship Association, will share a few stories about their experiences being audited, lessons learned, and how produce safety practices improved their farms.

For educators teaching GAPs, this will be a great opportunity to hear some success stories and challenges and ask lots of questions - about half of the webinar will be dedicated to audience Q&A.
