Description

Hosted in partnership with the Council for Healthy Food Systems and the Small Producers Initiative at Texas State University, the 2020 Conference is going virtual, Monday and Tuesday, October 26-27.

We’ll miss the face-to-face interaction with our community, but we’ve discovered several advantages to hosting this event online, including:

Greater ability to attract top-notch national speakers who might otherwise not be able to participate.

The opportunity for people to attend from anywhere, as distance and travel are no longer a barrier. Access to recordings of all sessions will be available to attendees for one full year at no additional charge. That means you won’t have to make that difficult choice between two sessions that run at the same time. Attend one in real time and watch the other later!

Although we’ll be apart from each other this year, we’re ensuring this will be as close to an in-person experience as possible, including a Q&A time in each session, a keynote address, a choice of topic-specific sessions during each time slot, and the ability to have conversations with other attendees, even days before and after the Conference.

This unique conference focuses on the policies and regulations affecting our farms and our food as well as the latest developments in sustainable agriculture. Whether you are a farmer, consumer, chef, local foods business owner, or nonprofit advocate, you will find useful information and tools to help support the growth of the local and sustainable food movement.

Conference Highlights:

  • A keynote address by U.S. Representatives Thomas Massie (R-KY) and Chellie Pingree (D-ME) on the federal-level focus on small farmers and sustainable agriculture.
  • Knowledgeable and engaging speakers on topics that include current state and federal policies, how producers and farmers’ markets adapted to the pandemic, nutrition, crop diversity, farm support programs, sales & marketing innovations, and more.
  • Networking with individuals and businesses who care about our local farms and food.
