Peer Network

Have you ever just wanted someone to talk to that understands exactly what you’re going through? Someone you can trust from your community?

We are launching the Land & Sea Together Peer Network in Rhode Island!

Our goal is to create a network of support made up of your peers in the farming, fishing, and forestry communities across the state. Sometimes you just want to talk to someone who “gets it” and has a similar experience to you. We are doing this to build strength through connection within our community, we are Stronger Together. To achieve this we need your time and dedication in becoming someone others can call on.

Training Details: We are working in partnership with Leanne Porter from Farm First Vermont, who will be leading a series of trainings designed to refine skills such as active listening and problem solving.

This is a two part training; with 3 trainings in part one, and 3 trainings in part two. Part one trainings will occur virtually on the following dates*:

– 11/15 @5-6:30pm
– 11/29 @5-6:30pm
– 12/6 @5-6:30pm

Part two will occur in January and will have an in person component. Details coming soon.

*We ask that you be present at all the trainings, if you cannot make one we will work with you to make up material covered.

We are Stronger Together

In honor of Suicide Prevention Month, we have made it our mission to equip 100 people in the farming, fisheries, and forestry communities in Rhode Island with the tools to identify mental health concerns and respond appropriately through the short, self-paced Stronger Together training!

This project has been made possible through Land & Sea Together, Rhode Island’s Farm and Ranch Stress Assistance Network (FRSAN) and was created by Cultivemos and Farm First VT. The original Stronger Together gives general case studies, however we are able to offer a version with examples in an agricultural setting.

Anyone can take the training, however, we are just compensating the first 100 farming, fishing, forestry people directly. If you work with FFF people, we encourage you to take the training too!

In order to compensate eligible* participants for their valuable time taking this training, we are offering a $250 stipend via Visa gift cards which can be used for your own wellness needs.
