We will discuss two very important topics:
1. Knowing about legal issues and insurance: Urban gardeners and farmers, and their businesses or organizations, encounter a number of legal matters in the regular growing and sale of products. We will present some of the legal problems gardeners and farmers may encounter, the current laws that can protect them, and how to help insurance agents properly assess farms to provide the proper coverage (and keep it affordable!).
2. Accessing an affordable and appropriate services (water, sewer and trash) rate: This workshop will explain how a New Orleans city farmer may get a reduced rate to properly reflect the services the farm uses – which could mean a big reduction in monthly bills!
