Food and nutrition play a crucial role in rural areas, as community health needs come together at the crossroads of both environmental and business ecosystems. Agritourism is a promising practice that can bring people to farms for education and entertainment while helping small communities sustain production and cultivate growth. In this webinar, our panel describes how agriculture and health intersect and create robust interdisciplinary opportunities for rural, tribal, and farming communities to thrive.
