Join Sustainable Farmers and Food Advocates in Mobile, Jan 15-18, 2014 at the Southern SAWG Conference!

Registration is now open at "Early Bird" reduced rates!   

"Practical Information." "Excellent Networking." "Great People." "Simply Inspiring." 

For 23 years, attendees at Southern SAWG's Practical Tools and Solutions for Sustaining Family Farms Conference come for the practical information and go home with so much more. While over 90% of past attendees reported they learned something they would use immediately, even higher numbers say meeting so many folks doing so many great things around the South was a highlight. With the high-rated practical sessions and pre-conference offerings and the great networking opportunities, this event attracts over 1,200 farmers and advocates every year.  

The popular pre-conference events begin on Wednesday and include a great line-up of  one-and-a-half day intensive short courses, and on Thursday, several exciting half-day field trips and mini courses. Each of these pre-conference activities requires separate registration. To learn more about the pre-conference offerings, click here.

The general conference, to be held on Friday and Saturday, offers more sessions than ever, with over sixty 1.5 hour sessions on a broad range of topics. These sessions will provide organic and sustainable production and marketing information for commercial horticultural and livestock producers, enterprise management and farm profitability lessons, farm policy education and community food systems development information. 

This conference is an absolute must-attend event for those serious about sustainable and organic farming and creating more vibrant community food systems! See you there.
