PITTSBORO, N.C. — If you’re one of the hundreds of growers, ag educators, and local food advocates who attends our Sustainable Agriculture Conference each year you’re probably wondering by now, “what’s the deal with SAC this year?”
With the health and safety of the farming community as our greatest concern, CFSA will not hold an in-person, multi-day conference in November. Instead, we’re excited to host an extended hybrid event that includes:
- On-Farm Workshops: attendance-limited full or half-day workshops
- Virtual Conference: live webcasts, networking sessions, social gatherings, resource sharing, interactive exhibits, and more!
We’re committed to addressing your needs and building a platform that brings lessons, tools, and community building to you, so you can continue to learn, connect, and grow with others near and far.
Each year, we send out a post-conference survey to attendees in an effort to plan for an even better event the following year. While we are grateful for and considerate of the feedback from last year’s attendees, it is an understatement to say that the needs of the local and sustainable agriculture community have shifted since last November.
Soil health, crops, and livestock still need to be managed, new skills need to be taught and honed, adapting to climate change needs to be addressed, and the daily challenges of a pre-pandemic world have not diminished.
If you have a few minutes, please share how our 2020 conference can be most helpful to you by completing this short survey.
