2012 PlacerGROWN Food and Farm Con­fer­ence is Sat­ur­day, Feb­ru­ary 4th!

Plans are under­way for the 2012 Plac­er­GROWN and the UC Davis Extension Food & Farm Con­fer­ence. The con­fer­ence will be held Feb­ru­ary 4, 2011 at Lin­coln High School. The theme of the 2012 con­fer­ence is “Cul­ti­vat­ing the next gen­er­a­tion”. 2012 Work­shops and courses are posted here.

The Plac­er­GROWN Food & Farm Con­fer­ence is Placer County’s pre­mier gath­er­ing of small farm­ers, agri­cul­tural stu­dents, farm­ers’ mar­ket man­agers and oth­ers involved in the small farm & agri­cul­tural indus­try. The one day edu­ca­tional con­fer­ence fea­tures over 25 work­shops; focused work­shops; engag­ing keynote addresses and numer­ous net­work­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties. Every­thing you need to plan a Big 2012 Future.

The Conference typically features 25-30 workshops, with lunch prepared by the Lincoln Future Farmers of America (FFA), and a trade show. The opportunity to meet and network with other farmers/ranchers and related agricultural organizations is as valuable as the educational content!
