If everyone not presenting disables their video, it can help with connectivity and stability of the zoom instance. I'm not sure how many have their video on, but just throwing that out there.
Carrie Backman

All of our presentations and resources shown here will be available on our website, https://extension.wsu.edu/wahkiakum/covid19/

I'm the project manager for YouPickFarms.org - a social purpose organization with the initial mission to help connect local farmers and their communities, to support local businesses, and promote healthy food options, initially intending to launch in May.With COVID-19, we want to shift our initial goals to help out as we can. We believe this could be with services such as a mapping service for farms to easily list and browse resources for sharing, in an informal way as shared earlier. We are also almost ready to list farms and produce themselves on filterable maps.If you have any suggestions or ideas as to how we can help in this abrupt and uncertain environment, please let us know. My email is: david@youpickfarms.org - I apologize if this isn't the correct format for this, but I hope it's alright.

David, what geographic area are you covering?
david
03:42:27
Hadn't intended to actually launch yet, but we're based in Mukilteo.We were going to start in Washington, but as it's an online website and resource, we are not limited and can extend throughout the US and other countries.
david
03:43:15
Our registration process and mapping are still about 2 weeks away from production, but we want to stay up to date with the community and help how we can.
david
03:43:35
Even if that means shifting our initial focus.

There are several farm directories for WA state online now. Like Pierce County Fresh, Eat Local First, Farm Guide (Tilth) etc.
david
03:45:34
sorry, had to reconnect
david
03:45:52
I got the last note about Pierce County Fresh, Eat Local First, Farm Guide (Tilth) etc.
david

We are eventually aiming to be an interactive map service, with customizable farm and market profile pages, and direct produce delivery.

Long term market effects (similar to the labor shortages mentioned - things like transportation and supply / production factors), would be good in 1-2 months, if we are still in the quarantine.
Erik Friend

Carrie Backman
04:00:59

Farmer's markets may open as scheduled because they are less risk (open air) but may need to have more packaging.
