People passionate about sustainable agriculture and healthy food systems from more than 30 states and six countries have gathered at our annual Sustainable Agriculture Conference since 1992, leaving inspired and energized for the season to come.

Food & farming education

Whether you’re in the beginning stages of your career, have decades of experience, or fall somewhere in between, you’ll be able to fill your schedule with meaningful and practical educational workshops, presentations, panel discussions, and learning circles that will support your work in farming and food systems.

Our 2020 program schedule will be announced later this fall. Join our email list to stay in the loop. In the meantime, you can view our latest 2019 program book to see the kinds of workshops you can expect this coming year. You can also find other past conference programs here.

Trade show

Our expansive trade show features vendors and businesses whose mission is to support sustainable agriculture professionals. You’ll have the opportunity to talk with and purchase products or services from seed companies, small equipment manufacturers, soil amendment producers, marketing consultants, organic certifiers, extension agents, feed producers, government agencies, researchers, and more!

We’ll be releasing our 2020 sponsorship, exhibitor, and advertising packages soon. Email if you’d like us to connect with you directly once they become available.

Networking & social events

Educational sessions are interspersed with networking and social events that include evening receptions, live music, a seed swap, knitting circles, movie screenings—and of course delicious, regionally sourced meals.

Future Farmers (K–8th grade)

Our Future Farmers program educates and entertains your children while you attend the conference. Children from kindergarten to eighth grade will enjoy a wide range of activities developed to increase their understanding of farming, nutrition, and sustainability.
