Each event is planned in response to the particular needs and interests of the host communities, but will consist of: a wide variety of expert-facilitated roundtable discussions; experiential learning opportunities like farm tours and mini-workshops; exhibits and resource tables; and of course, a delicious, locally sourced meal.
Topics covered range from those specific to on-farm production, to intersecting issues such as environmental justice, community economic wellbeing, and more. The Regional Food & Farm Forums are open and accessible to those with all levels of experience. All activities foster participatory learning and community-building across our network, sowing the seeds for collaborative partnerships that will continue to grow after the event has ended.
