SSAWG Conference: Practical Tools & Solutions for Sustaining Family Farms

Primary tabs

For over 20 years Southern SAWG has provided the practical tools and solutions you’ve needed and we’ve built the necessary bridges between farmers, marketers, ag professionals and local food system advocates. This year we’re moving a little west to make it easier for those in the western part of our region to participate in this popular event. We’re not going so far west that our regular conference participants from the eastern part of our region won’t be able to participate still. Check out the program and you’ll see you can’t miss this one.   

The popular pre-conference events begin on Wednesday and include one-and-a-half day intensive short courses, and on Thursday, several half-day field trips and mini courses.

The general conference, to be held on Friday and Saturday, offers fifty-six 1.5 hour sessions on a broad range of topics. These sessions will provide organic and sustainable production and marketing information for commercial horticultural and livestock producers, enterprise management lessons, farm policy education and community food systems development information.

This conference is an absolute must-attend event for those serious about sustainable and organic farming and creating more vibrant community food systems!
