You may be prompted to use the Zoom app to join the meeting - it's a pretty simple one click set up, but if you don't want to do that, try another browser (in theory you should have the option to join without an app).
You can find recordings and notes from our past webinars in the "Webinar Resources" category of this blog. These webinars are free for everyone, but we sure don't mind if folks become VFN Members to help support this and other programming designed to strengthen our local food businesses.
