Open Call Papers: Peer2Peer

Cover of JAFSCD volume 6, issue 3

On our cover: Specialized equipment, like this EcoWeeder, can help small-scale fruit and vegetable growers expand to meet the growing demand for local foods. Yet the investment required to purchase specialized machinery and attachments is often beyond the financial reach of small-scale, beginning producers. Sharing equipment with other growers is one possible solution to this challenge. See the paper in this issue, The Benefits and Challenges of Machinery Sharing Among Small-scale Fruit and Vegetable Growers.
