Help a food producer attend Southern SAWG’s Practical Tools and Solutions for Sustaining Family Farms Conference.

The annual conference is the must-attend event for those serious about sustainable and organic farming and creating more vibrant community food systems in the South! Over 90% of past attendees reported they learned lessons they would use immediately.

Much of what we do on our farm, and even what enabled our move to farming, was seen and heard through SSAWG field trips, workshops and sessions.
I have been gardening for over thirty years and only recently started market gardening full time. It was refreshing to meet so many people with the same passions as I have. Everyone talking sustainable agriculture. It was great. It made me confident that I am on the right path. Keep up the great work.
I tell anyone that’s farming or interested in farming that if they only attend one conference a year, it should be the SSAWG conference.

For 26 years, the Southern SAWG annual conference has been providing the practical tools and solutions farmers in the South need. We offer outstanding “field-tested” presenters and a full slate of hot-topic conference session, plus exceptional pre-conference courses and field trips. We have sessions for those with years of experience and for those who are new to the field. The session topics include organic and sustainable vegetable in fields and in high tunnels, grazing and sustainable livestock management, specialty crop production, unique marketing strategies, food hubs, scaling up, increasing profits, business and finance management, beginning farming, farm to school, community food systems work, federal farm programs, agriculture policy developments and more.

… met people that would and have changed my life for the better, found information that we needed and some that I didn’t know we needed.
I was particularly pleased to see that so many experienced farmers attended the conference and shared their experiences. I learned a lot from their presentations and hope to continue to do so.
SSAWG is a fantastic opportunity to unite with people of similar work/interest and exchange ideas. Thank you for keeping it going!
