Going Green
Most analysts agree that “green jobs” in a variety of fields—from energy to agriculture—will offer growing career opportunities in the future. Workshops at the 2010 Black Farmers and Urban Gardeners Conference will highlight how our nation’s growing awareness of ecological issues is creating opportunities for food and farming-related professionals.

Opportunities in the growing green economy will only benefit those who get the training and support necessary to take advantage of them. Conference workshops will focus on building awareness and resources to help prepare African Americans for food and farm-related careers.
