Another Successful Southern SAWG Conference!

We had so much fun and learned a lot at the 24th annual Practical Tools and Solutions for Sustaining Family Farms conference.

Thank you to all who participated in this event, led sessions, hosted field trips, facilitated sessions, provided scholarship funds, contributed food, donated milk, displayed posters and exhibited. Thank you, also, to those who coordinated these activities!
