    • Fun Sessions: Morning yoga, happy hours, a family costume party
    • Games: ,250 worth of prizes to give out to conference challenge winners
    • Share & Connect: There’s a private social media feed just for SAC! Post photos, comments, and engage with discussion threads on myriad topics

For 35 years, CFSA’s annual Sustainable Agriculture Conference has drawn farmers, foodies, researchers, educators, and activists for a weekend celebration of innovation in local sustainable agriculture. Educational workshops and panels, inspiring talks, and tours by industry leaders are interspersed with social opportunities, exhibits, and networking.

Attendees from more than a dozen states gather each November and leave energized, connected, and inspired for a new season ahead!
