 We have nearly completed compiling the 1998 "Small Farm Resource Guide." 
 This guide will augment the resources available to small 
 farmers and people that work with the small farm community.
 We need your

and other materials that can enhance the economic viability and quality of 
life within the small farm community. 

If you have any information you would like to submit, please

on or before FEBRUARY 13, 1998. If you have already sent your information to us, 
you do not need to resubmit.  We have already compiled about 160 
pages of information, but we can expand the guide if you have any additional
information,  you would like us to consider. 
We especially need to make sure our list of small farm organizations 
is complete.  Some examples of the kinds of organizations that we 
want to include are:  Land Loss Prevention Project, New 
England Small Farm Institute, Small Farm Today, Federation of Southern Cooperatives,
Rural Coalition, Arkansas Land and Farm Dev. Corp,  the Small Farm Programs 
at the land grant institutions, other universities, and other public 
and private sectors.   If you have suggestions, please let us know.
We also want to list organizations that are not specifically 
small farm organizations but have grants/beginning farmer programs or 
information  to offer the small farm community.  Examples include: Center for Rural Affairs, 
Farm Foundation, W. K. Kellogg Foundation, SARE,  the 
National Agricultural Library, Pennsylvania Farm Link, ATTRA, Missouri Alternatives Center, The 
Leopold Center, Metro-Farm, Organic Associations, State Departments 
of Agriculture, and others.
When the guide is completed in late February, it will be posted on our website at:
