Growing Power's National International Urban and Small Farms Conference

"Lets Scale it Up! Growing Food and Farmers: Best practices in growing, distribution and community building" 

Dates: Pre-Conference Training November 16-18, 2016 Conference November 18-20, 2016

Location: Growing Power Warehouse 13111 W. Silver Spring Drive Butler, WI

Every two years, hundreds of people from around the world travel to Milwaukee to participate in an intensive three day conference that covers urban aquaculture, urban farming, planning strategies, education, youth programming, food policy and food justice. Participants include: farmers, academics, chefs, policy makers, organizers, and people from countless other walks of life. Our conference theme for 2016 is Let’s Scale it Up! Growing Food and Farmers: Best practices in growing, distribution and community building. It is time for the Good Food Revolution to scale up and really push ourselves to move beyond just one garden or one market but how can we make things better for ourselves, our neighbors, and our world.  

This year Will Allen and conference organizers are excited to announce that we are bringing home the effort with the conference being hosted at Growing Power’s world headquarters at 5500 W. Silver Spring Drive and at our Community Food Distribution Center in Butler, WI. Hundreds of participants will gather and share in best practices, and learn how we can really scale up together. Workshops will be hands-on, interactive and will showcase the work being done locally in the Milwaukee area as well as nationally and internationally.

Coinciding with the conference is the Growing Food and Justice for All (GFJI) gathering. GFJI is a comprehensive network that views dismantling racism as a core principal with brings together social change agents from diverse sectors who are working to bring about new, healthy, and sustainable food systems, while supporting and building multicultural leadership in impoverished communities throughout the world.

This year organizers are excited to offer some pre-conference trainings that will be hosted by Growing Power and their partners from November 16th-18th. Growing Power will be offering an intensive Composting workshop, UWM- School of Freshwater Sciences in cooperation with Growing Power will be offering an aquaponics intensive workshop and the Growing Food and Justice for All Iniative will be hosting an Intensive Leadership and Facilitator Training (click here for workshop description). 


Conference Admission includes: Light Snack on Friday, Light Breakfast, Lunch and Chef Night on Saturday and a Light Breakfast on Sunday. There will be vendors avaliable for Friday Night Dinner and Sunday Lunch if you would like to eat your meal on site or explore the delicious options in the Urban Agriculture Capital of the World!
