Internationally known speakers on how to farm sustainably are coming to Grass Valley, California!
A yeasty combo of keynote speakers, face-to-face chats with famous farmers, workshops, and exhibits awaits you in downtown Grass Valley over the weekend of January 19 and 20.
The Sustainable Food and Farm Conference is for you if
1) you care about growing (or eating) sustainable food,
2) you’re a farmer who wants more ideas to grow better this year, or
3) you’re thinking you’d like to be a farmer.
Kick off the weekend Saturday morning with a Q&A with the Salatin family from Polyface Farm in Virginia. Find out how they work on a multi-species, multi-generational organic farm. Father, Joel Salatin, will also be one of the keynote speakers later on. Tickets are going fast for the Polyface You! session.
Inspiration and information all Saturday afternoon with the four keynote speakers:
Will Allen (shown above) is an urban farmer in Milwaukee.
