Description/Notes: 

Every winter, Future Harvest CASA holds the largest sustainable agriculture conference in the lower Mid-Atlantic. This year, we have added an extra day of hands-on, pre-conference workshops: beekeeping basics, food photography and styling, fermentations, wet hopping -- and much more!

And then the conference starts, with session after session on:

  • Bay-saving farming 
  • Innovative growing practices: fruit, vegetable, livestock
  • ABC's for beginning farmers -- including business planning
  • Where and how to source local and sustainable food
  • The who and how behind the local libation boom: beer, wine, cider, and spirits
  • Fresh food and health
  • How we can build a better, stronger, more profitable foodshed
  • Food hub 101
  • How to become a locavore chef
  • Local cocktail hour, local food dinners
  • and much more
