Farm to Table Conference for Mid-South Producers
On Monday, February 7, 2011, the Urban Farm is hosting the Farm to Table Conference for Mid-South Producers at 2505 Poplar Ave in Memphis. The conference will feature sessions on marketing to diverse outlets, technology and social media, production practices, and health department rules and regulations. While we are inviting experts on a variety of topics, we recognize that one of the most valuable resources we have is the collective knowledge of other farmers and producers. Therefore, while some sessions will be set in advance, other topics will be chosen that day based on YOUR interests using a conference format called "Open Space Technology." This way, we will ensure that topics presented are most important to you. Likewise, you may be called upon to share your expertise in a particular area with other producers and local food stakeholders.

The cost to attend the conference is $20 if you register in advance and $25 at the door. There are a limited number of scholarships available. Contact Mary Elizabeth Phillips if you would like more information.
