This September the Farm Hub will pilot a series of computer classes in Spanish, for farmers and agricultural workers. The class will acquaint new users with a laptop computer and get them established with the most basic tools of online communication, navigation, and function. Workers empowered with these skills will be better able to access information, communicate across platforms in work and life, and adapt to ever-evolving technologies.
