Spring 2011: Risk management workshop held in Carpinteria
by Julie Newman
Many businesses are impacted from natural disasters such as the recent floods and cyclone in Queensland and the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. Risk management is important for nursery managers, not only to recover from financial losses following natural disasters, but also to avoid financial risks and survive during economic recessions.
On May 10, UCNFA held a risk management workshop for greenhouse and nursery managers in Carpinteria, co-sponsored by the Santa Barbara County Flower and Nursery Growers Association.
If you missed this meeting, watch for information on this important topic to be published in an upcoming UCNFA News issue by the workshop presenters, Trent Teegerstrom and Ursula Schuch, extension specialists with the University of Arizona.
