Event description

Description

Katherine Kelly, the Executive Director of Cultivate KC in Kansas City, MO, will be joining us as our Keynote Speaker. Among other programs, Cultivate KC co-manages the New Roots for Refugees program, which trains refugees to start and operate independent vegetable farms. The Community Agriculture Conference is an annual gathering for those from the gardening and urban agriculture communities. People of all ages and abilities are welcome to attend!

Keynote Presentation: Growing Food for the Future
Katherine will share a powerful vision for local food that looks to the massive changes we will see in our climate, in our urban communities, and in our growing methods as opportunities for positive developments in our relationship to food. More than ever, people who grow food will need to be educators, community leaders, and climate and environmental advocates. She will invite us to join her in envisioning the future and call on all of us to grow a healthy and sustainable community.

Registration: $15 per person, $20 day of event
