Economic viability refers to abilities and capacities of farms/farmers to 'make a living' over the long haul. In addition to sufficient income, economic viability includes the recognition that farmers do not live in isolation nor without co-workers. Implicit in the concept is the recognition that engagement in and enjoyment of the work essentially determines the rate at which farmers are 'grown' and replaced -- economic viability must span generations; farming must be attractive to members of the younger generation. LESSON relies upon these organizations to keep us informed about economic viability and agricultural practices and to share that information with Peninsula farmers and our community.
