Growing Green 2020: Investing in Conservation and Local Food Conference

Tecumseh Land Trust and Agraria will host a conference on sustainable agriculture and land conservation practices, local food systems, and economics on the weekend of March 13-15, Friday-Sunday, in Yellow Springs. Information on funding supports for farmers and landowners to implement conservation practices will be available. We invite landowners, farmers, and local supporters.

The purpose of this conference is for participants to gain an increased sense of practices they could adapt, the diversity of products they could grow, and the supports available to implement conservation practices on their lands. The goal is for conference participants to take actions towards implementing conservation practices and towards growing a stronger local food network.

Friday’s events are free and open to all!
Sat-Sun $20 – $75 sliding scale
