2019 Sustainable Agriculture Conference

For 34 years, the annual Sustainable Agriculture Conference has drawn farmers, foodies, researchers, educators, and activists for a weekend celebration of innovation in local sustainable agriculture. Educational workshops and panels, inspiring talks, and bus tours by industry leaders are interspersed with social opportunities, exhibits, and regionally sourced meals.

Attendees from more than a dozen states gather each November and leave energized, connected, and inspired for a new season ahead!
