Regional Agritourism Strategies for Community Economic Development

May 11, 2021 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

This gathering highlights how international regions as diverse as Canada, Saudi Arabia and Georgia are using agritourism as a way to build resilience by celebrating agricultural history, ecology, and heritage. We will hear how agritourism initiatives are key to sustaining rural economic development by allowing farmers to diversify their income, regenerate communities, and reimagine the future (and recovery) as travel trends shift during the evolving COVID-19 pandemic. Presenters will share best practices and lessons learned from developing and implementing regional strategies around agritourism. 9am Pacific daylight saving time; 12pm Eastern daylight saving time; 6pm Central European daylight saving time; 6pm South Africa time; 9:30pm Indian time
