Missouri Wine and Grape 'Growing Great Neighbors'
Missouri Ag Connection - 04/16/2018

The Missouri Wine and Grape Board recently took part in a pilot program designed to help build resilient agriculture communities in Missouri. The "Growing Good Neighbors" program gathered grape growers, retailers, crop growers, livestock producers, conservationists, beekeepers, university extension, local agriculture teachers and others over a shared meal to foster mutual understanding.

Dinners held at St. James Winery in St. James, Baltimore Bend Vineyard in Waverly, and Les Bourgeois Vineyards in Rocheport, launched conversations about issues that impact today's agricultural communities and helped the attendees uncover common values and foster mutual understanding. The Missouri Wine and Grape Board hopes this will help create resilient communities with a favorable environment for conflict resolution.
