COVID-19 Resources for Farmers & Markets

 

We’re dedicated to keeping our conference accessible for all who wish to attend through scholarship and workshare opportunities. Apply by January 15, 2020. 

Workshare

Workshare opportunities are open to all.

Participate in our workshare program—which starts in December and extends until after the conference in February—to reduce your conference registration costs in exchange for lending us a helping hand. Workshare participants trade between four and twelve hours of work to cover up to two days of registration costs. Workshare participants may also apply for scholarship support.

If you don’t need financial assistance to cover conference registration fees but would like to lend a helping hand by volunteering, learn more here.
