Welcome to the 18th Annual FHCASA Conference Online Registration!
Early Bird Rates Extended to January 5, 2017!
Join us January 12-14, 2017 for Future Harvest CASA's 18th annual Cultivate the Chesapeake Foodshed Conference! One of the largest sustainable ag conferences in the lower Mid-Atlantic, this robust winter gathering brings together farmers, chefs, advocates, and foodies for 3 full days of learning, networking, and good food.
The 2017 conference is being held at the College Park Marriott Hotel and Conference Center in College Park, Maryland. The 2017 Conference features 4 dynamic keynotes: Chris Blanchard, Dr. Kristine Nichols, Chef Jordan Lloyd, and Elizabeth Henderson! This year's conference offers 10 intensive pre-conference workshops, 8 conference tracks (including our new track Regenerative Agriculture track!) featuring over 48 sessions, and our Local Fare Fair, featuring some of our region's finest craft food and drink.
In response to 2016 Conference feedback, we have made some improvements to our 2017 ticket structure. We are now offering a one-day ticket option (for Friday and Saturday) for those of you that can only attend a single day and we have also folded the Local Fare Fair ticket into registration for those of you that will be attending Saturday, January 14th. As always, the Thursday pre-conference sessions are stand-alone and you can purchase those tickets separately.
We encourage you to take advantage of Future Harvest CASA membership as it discounts your winter conference registration, discounts year-round field programming, and gives your voice to Future Harvest policy and voting at our annual Membership Meeting.

The College Park Marriott Hotel and Conference Center is offering a group rate of $119 per night (not including taxes and fees). This group rate is available until December 26, 2016.
