Subject: Answer 25 farming questions - and we'll mail you a hat

Dear farmers!

We're a small team on a big mission - to make precision agriculture concepts affordable and accessible to even the smallest of farmers. We need some input to be smarter about what we're building.

Our name is Farm Dog (http://farmdog.ag/) and we'll gladly send a Farm Dog hat to the first 50 people that will answer the 25 questions in this survey form: http://goo.gl/forms/88SywcPrlt

Yours,

Michael Hermon

Subject: Farm Employee Housing How-to Guide

Hello,
My name is Rob Elliott. I've attached a "Farm Employee Housing How-to Guide" to this post. I believe that farmers, farm laborers, investors, and potentially third party developers have a lot to gain from employee housing. The guide is thorough, so I’d encourage you to read the introduction and go from there. Feel free to pass the guide on to anyone else you think would find it useful. While farm employee housing is no longer my main focus, I’d be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.

All the Best,

Rob Elliott

I wonder the same thing here in Sonoma Co. Septic systems are a big deal. Can you even get a permit for septic for a travel trailer or mini home? Or is it possible to have the same porta-John folks that are coming here already do the pumping and not even have a septic?

Subject: Farmworkers Right Speaker

Does anyone have any recommendations for someone who would be good for speaking to a group about local and national farmworkers rights issues? I have tried multiple times to reach the local UFW office with no success. I am in Sonoma County, California.

Thank you!

The best is Elizabeth Henderson but she is not local. Check out her organization Agricultural Justice Project , they will be at Eco Farm this week.

Food First does a lot of good work too, and they are based in the East Bay.

Today, we're excited to focus the final installment in our Labor & Worker Safety Series on the New FarmsReach Labor & Worker Safety Toolkit! It provides checklists, info sheets, spreadsheets, and detailed practical references to help you better manage your employees.

All of our Toolkit resources were recommended by our Featured Farmers, partners and the community, and are categorized by topic:

We hope these resources provide practical ideas and tools to start thinking differently about managing your team.

As always, if you have questions, words of wisdom or other great tips for managing your workforce and keeping them safe, visit our Conversations Page and post a question or comment! If you have a great resource to share, let us know!
