Little Rock, located between the fertile Delta and the beautiful Ozarks, is a growing hot-spot for the local foods movement and is a natural fit for Southern SAWG’s annual conference.
The SSAWG conference provides a forum to learn about sustainable farming techniques and marketing strategies, community food systems, and federal farm policies and programs that promote sustainable agriculture. This event also provides producers, researchers, information providers, concerned consumers, and community organizers the opportunity to build networks, strengthen alliances, and celebrate the achievements of Southern sustainable farmers.
The conference is loaded with practical information tailored for those in the South producing organic and sustainable food on a commercial scale and for those in the region working to improve local food systems. All conference sessions, pre-conference courses, and field trips will be led by successful producers and well-respected educators and organizers from around the region with extensive knowledge and, more importantly, practical experience.
Full details on the 2019 Practical Tools and Solutions for Sustaining Family Farms conference will be available soon.
