During this session, participants will gain information and resources on the impacts of grief and loss. In the time of COVID-19 when farmers and agriculture communities have had to make devastating decisions with livestock, dairy supplies, and sustainability of the farming way of life, it can be traumatic and have a lasting effect. Hear from farmer experiences and learn tools and strategies to honor your grief and loss and ways to live through that impact.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
