We are very excited to be going to Little Rock, Arkansas for our next Southern SAWG conference.


Pre-Conference courses: January 23–24, 2019
General Conference: January 25–26, 2019

Little Rock, located between the fertile Delta and the beautiful Ozarks, is a growing hot-spot for the local foods movement and is a natural fit for us!

This is our annual event, providing a forum to learn about sustainable farming techniques and marketing strategies, community food systems, and federal farm policies and programs that promote sustainable agriculture. This event also provides producers, researchers, information providers, concerned consumers and community organizers the opportunity to build networks, strengthen alliances, and celebrate the achievements of Southern sustainable farmers.

Our conference is, as always, loaded with practical information tailored for those in the South producing organic and sustainable food on a commercial scale and for those in our region working to improve local food systems. All conference sessions, pre-conference courses and field trips will be led by successful producers and well-respected educators and organizers from around the region with extensive knowledge and, more importantly, practical experience.
