Be a part of the 2019 Food & Farm Forum and Youth Food & Farm Forum, the largest annual gathering of ASAN’s statewide network of farmers, gardeners, community leaders, and good food advocates. Diverse participants from across the state will convene to swap stories, ideas, and wisdom, and to together build a more robust local food system in Alabama.
The Forum will be held on December 5-7, 2019, at Camp Beckwith in Fairhope, AL.
DEC 5 – Pre-Forum sessions
DEC 6-7 – General Forum sessions
The Forum is part conference, part fair, and part retreat or reunion. It consists of peer-to-peer, hands-on, and experiential learning, in the form of workshops, panel discussions, and breakout conversations.
The Forum engages people’s minds, hearts, and bodies, regardless of skill level or experience. Parts of the Forum are modeled after the folk tradition of the “bee,” in which community members come together to do shared work while also socializing, learning, and celebrating. Oh and did we mention there will be good food?!
Since our YOUTH Food & Farm Forum was such a huge success last year, get ready for the second year at Camp Beckwith. In conjunction with the adult Forum, The Youth Forum is geared towards youth ages 14-21.
*Family friendly!* FREE child care will be provided throughout the weekend for kids younger than 14. Must register.
We hope you’ll make plans to join us! All the info you need on both events can be found at http://asanonline.org/forum19.
