We at 1000 Ecofarms know how tumultuous these past couple years have been. Yet as the future gleams brighter than ever, we’re excited to present a plethora of exciting opportunities regarding Sustainable Agriculture that YOU can be a part of.
From the Chesapeake to the Sierra, there is no shortage of opportunities to learn about Sustainable Agriculture!
Since 1986, CFSA’s annual Sustainable Agriculture Conference has drawn farmers, foodies, researchers, educators, and activists for a celebration of innovation in local sustainable agriculture. This year will be no different as the conference follows a hybrid virtual/in-person format:
- Nov. 5-14 | A virtual conference with 53 workshops (and counting!) over ten days. This doesn't include all the networking sessions, meetups, and round-table discussions!
- Nov. 15 | Half-day on-farm intensives to take your knowledge of irrigation, agritourism, regenerative grazing, and more to the next level.
