Attendees will be able to learn from experts across the local food and agriculture fields, from nanoscale nutrient researchers to food policy council leaders to NRCS soil health consultants. Farmers, gardeners, food distributors, homesteaders and more local food advocates can share resources and knowledge from their offices, barns, greenhouses, fields, or anywhere else they can join online.
“A lot has changed since last year’s conference, but we’re excited to share this new virtual experience with our local food community,” says Karen Schwalbe, executive director at SEMAP.
