The Southern Sustainable Agriculture Working Group conference is the best place to connect with the largest gathering of sustainable southern farmers and industry leaders to build your company or organization’s relationship to the sustainable agriculture industry. As a sponsor you have the opportunity to bring your product and service message to a robust network of over 1,200 farmers, activists, and support organizations representing our 13-state region and beyond.

Again this year, we are also opening the trade show to the general public to provide you with the opportunity to share your sustainable message to consumers and business leaders with an interest in sustainable living.

Your company or organization will not only gain direct exposure and recognition during the conference, but will also gain wide exposure to our network of farmers and industry leaders through print advertising, newsletters, and social media in the months leading up to and following the conference.

The four-day conference includes:

  • Pre-conference farm tours and intensive courses.

  • More than 56 sessions in subjects for farmers, food system leaders, and farm service providers.

  • Over 60 exhibitors.

  • Networking opportunities—regional and topical meetings, seed exchange, happy hour mixer, photo booth, and more.

Because sustainable solutions depend on the involvement of the entire community, Southern SAWG is committed to including all persons in the South without bias.
