Massachusetts Urban Farming Conference

March 28, 2015

$35

With Urban Farming, Massachusetts has the potential to offer an abundance of fresh, local healthy food to its residents. Urban Farming is a smart growth strategy that contributes to the Massachusetts food system, sustainable urban environmental management and climate change adaptation. The annual Massachusetts Urban Farming Conference (UFC) is designed to advance the opportunities and address the barriers involved in cultivating a resilient and thriving Urban Farming sector. The UFC is a multi-sector stakeholder forum designed to share information regarding what is currently happening in Massachusetts. The UFC fosters solutions, sustainable networks and business relationships.

 

The UFC brings together participants representing all aspects of Urban Farming including, but not limited to, farmers (including roof top, chicken, bees, etc.), land trust managers, policy makers, commercial buyers, foundations, investors and all others.

 

The 3rd Annual Massachusetts UFC is comprised of interactive panels, demonstration workshops, expert discussions on diverse and relevant topics with distinguished Conversation Leaders and a networking reception.
