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.
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 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!
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.
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.
This year, our winter conference will be held at the Lancaster Convention Center in the heart of Lancaster, PA. You’ll have the opportunity to explore Lancaster’s vibrant downtown, its food, and its history.
