"Down on the Farm: Supporting Farmers in Stressful Times" is a 3-hour workshop that teaches people who live and work in agricultural communities how to recognize and respond when they suspect a farmer or farm family member might need help. It can be offered in-person or online. The kit consists of 1) a PowerPoint slide set (ZIP) and 2) a Facilitator’s Guide (PDF) – you just add 3-4 people to make a delivery team. It’s free, and we encourage users to adapt and modify it for their own local area and audiences.
