Farming Our Future: The Forces and Faces of 21st Century Agriculture

Date: March 9, 2015 - March 9, 2015
Location: Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center

The Less=More sustainable agriculture coalition presents a conference addressing what it means to be a farmer today. The event will cover the forces that shape this important work in our society including the Farm Bill, subsidies, the Right to Farm Act, emerging trends of nontraditional farmers in minority communities, and the increase in urban and suburban backyard farmers. The conference will feature two keynote speakers and two panel discussions. Beginning farmers, people considering farming, and consumers concerned about food as it relates to their health, our communities, the environment and animal welfare should find this an extremely informative event.
