The Tennessee State University College of Agriculture, Human and Natural Sciences Cooperative Extension Program plans The Changing Face of Agriculture in Tennessee Small Farms Expo, set for August 30 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The expo features a number of workshops to help small farms achieve their potential, from social media marketing tips to planning assistance, safe pesticide use and getting the right equipment for your farm.

A free lunch will be served at the expo and vendors will be available to sell goods and offer advice. At the end of the day, the Outstanding Small Farmer award will be presented to a nominee.

The TSU College of Agriculture, Human and Natural Sciences is located at 3500 John Merrit Boulevard in Nashville. To preregister for the Small Farms Expo, become a vendor or to nominate an outstanding farmer, contact Chris Robbins at (615) 792-5744 or at crobbins@tnstate.edu
