On Tuesday, 17 May 2022 and on our behalves, Dave Douglas welcomed Ken Forth, assisted by Gary Cooper,  as our Guest Speakers.  Via Zoom, they spoke to us about 'F.A.R.M.S' and all of the associated impacts that International works have on our (and their) communities. 
Ken (from his farm in Lynden) and Gary (from his farm in Norfolk) offered a very informative overview of the history and current circumstance surrounding the international workers support program the is so essential to the aim of maintaining the food supply that we are so dependent upon. 
See the "Read more ..." tab for additional information about Ken and the F.A.R.M.S. program. The 'Read more..." tab also includes a link to "Heartbeat"; a great video on their work; "A Celebration of International Farm Workers'.
Following quite a few questions about the program, Steve Malo thanked both speakers for the success of the program as they have managed it and expressed the gratitude we all have for their passion and their commitment to farm support in our communities.
