With the continued growth of the CSA movement in the Midwest comes opportunities and complexities. The conference will provide a forum for CSA farmers and advocates to come together for deliberative discussion and peer-to-peer learning. Full-group sessions, including a keynote, will discuss shared values of the movement and strategies for promoting cooperation and shared risk among farms and communities.
A set of workshop tracks, each with four workshops, will provide hands-on and peer-to-peer learning for CSA farmers in the areas of:
Beginning CSA Farming ~ Production & Logistics
Building Community ~ Financial Management & Business Planning
