The conference will include short courses, oral and poster paper presentations, exhibits, success stories and educational tours in and around Virginia Beach. Organizers say attendees will "learn about innovative advances in research, extension and outreach; network and strengthen existing partnerships with other small farm professionals, and take home new ideas that will help to ensure small farmers and ranchers in your region not only survive, but thrive in today’s economy."
The basic conference fee is $325 for registrations through Aug. 5, $400 afterward. Pre-conference short courses are an additional $25. For more information click here.
