"BACK TO OUR ROOTS"

Focus on Farming is the only
one-day gathering for all types of
farming in one location; whether
organic or conventional, livestock or
row crops, large or small. Providing
quality education to sustain current
farmers and attracting new farmers
to our region is a critical component
in securing the next generation's
local food supply.

Recognizing that agriculture is constantly
changing, many established farmers come
to hear about recent research and learn new
techniques. Keynote presentations from
Rob Brooks, creator of the "We're a Lot Like
You, a Little Different" ad campaign that we
all identify with and, Will Allen founder of
"Growing Power", an urban farmer who is
transforming the cultivation, production and
delivery of healthy foods to under-served
urban populations.
