Paul Mitchell  - [Some farmers are relocated. Others join the ranks of an estimated 150 million migrant workers drawn to the booming cities in search of jobs. Because of China's restrictive household registration system, which prohibits rural inhabitants from moving to the cities, they are forced to work illegally, earning pennies an hour and without access to social services. While the migration is good for China's overly rural economy, another 150 million peasants, lured by the promise of a better life, are expected to move to urban centres in the next decade.] China concerns me a lot because of the massive unemployment, ... I see enough people wandering the streets as it is. If they can't keep this drive of construction and development, what are these people going to do? You just have to think about that. The Chinese are incredibly strong, they can take a lot more than any Canadian ever could. But I think there's a limit to all that, too.

Peter Marks  - Some Western North Carolina farmers who have been selling commodity crops are not pleased with the prices they've been getting. Many are now looking for new markets and new ways to diversify their income, control the price they get for what they grow, and stay in farming. We are fortunate in Western North Carolina because we have many family farms and a community of people and businesses that wants locally grown food. This conference aims to give farmers the skills they need to reach these markets successfully.
