For the eighth year, the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry, in partnership with the ONIE Project will be hosting the Oklahoma Local Agriculture Summit (formerly called the Oklahoma Farmers Market and Agritourism Conference) – an education-packed summit for local ag.
The summit’s focus is to continue the momentum for local food in Oklahoma by providing a summit that strengthens local food systems, farmers markets, and agritourism sites through resources, education, and networking opportunities.
The summit will kick off March 1 with in-depth workshops, including marketing workshops, growing demonstrations, and industry meetings.
On March 2 over 20 breakout sessions will be provided, covering topics for growers, market managers, agritourism sites, and support organizations.
On March 3, participants can choose between two rolling workshops showcasing agritourism sites or innovative farm practices.
All summit activities are free to attend. Registration is required for all events. Lunch is included on March 2. Thanks to Langston University, there will be some sessions available virtually, and satellite locations for the conference across the state. The planning team is monitoring COVID-19 and will announce special precautions closer to date.
