The Southern SAWG Annual Conference is well-known for providing the practical tools and solutions you need at our annual conference. It is the must-attend event for those serious about sustainable and organic farming and creating more vibrant community food systems! This popular event attracts farmers and local food advocates from across the nation each year. We offer outstanding “field-tested” presenters, a full slate of hot-topic conference sessions and pre-conference courses, several field trips, a poster display and a trade show.

New for 2020!

  • In addition to the usual wide array of subjects and practical information for farmers, each Southern SSAWG Conference will offer specially-curated information and activities addressing a timely topic or issue. The special topic weaves through the normal conference agenda. A color code appears in the conference program to allow for easy planning to “follow the ribbon” through the conference. This year’s topic is: Agricultural Resilience in a Changing Climate. Look for the blue dot in the program to follow the thread throughout the conference.

  • Poster authors will be present at their posters for one 1.5 hour session on Friday, January 24th, and on Saturday, January 25th, during the conference. You will be able to talk directly with researchers about their work.

  • The trade show will be open to the public on both Friday and Saturday for a nominal fee of $10 per day.
