SSAWG “Practical Tools and Solutions for Sustaining Family Farms” Conference
January 17 - January 20
From the organizers: “The Southern SAWG Annual Conference is well-known for providing the practical tools and solutions you need at our annual conference. It is the must-attend event for those serious about sustainable and organic farming and creating more vibrant community food systems! This popular event draws over 1,200 farmers and local food advocates from across the nation each year. We offer outstanding “field-tested” presenters, a full slate of hot-topic conference sessions and pre-conference courses, several field trips, a poster display and a trade show.
“The popular Pre-Conference events begin on Wednesday and include a great line-up of one-and-a-half day intensive short courses and then on Thursday, several exciting half-day field trips and mini courses. Each of these pre-conference activities requires separate registration.
“The General Conference is held on Friday and Saturday. The General Conference line-up includes nearly 60 educational sessions, plus a state networking session for each of the 13 states in our region, and another 13 information exchange sessions where you get to exchange ideas and information with those who share your interests.”
“The session topics include organic and sustainable vegetable in fields and in high tunnels, grazing and sustainable livestock management, specialty crop production, unique marketing strategies, campus farms, scaling up, increasing profits, business and finance management, beginning farming, community food systems work, federal farm programs, agriculture policy developments and more.”
