August 25, 2008

MOBILE, Ala. -- The Mobile County Farmers Federation's Greenhouse, Nursery and Sod Committee will host a free H-2A seminar Tuesday night, Aug. 26, 7 p.m., at Mobile's Jon Archer Center.

The H-2A temporary agricultural program establishes a means for agricultural employers who anticipate a shortage of domestic workers to bring nonimmigrant foreign workers to the U.S. to perform agricultural labor or services of a temporary or seasonal nature.

Dan Bremer, president of AgWorks, Inc., a Lake Park, Ga., firm that specializes in acquiring temporary workers for agriculture and other industries, will be among the scheduled speakers.

Other speakers include local producers Andy Thornburg, Oliver Washington IV and Mark Williams who will discuss their own experiences with the H-2A program.

For more information, call Tommy Odom at (251) 605-0903.
