Hosted by Rural Action, an organization for Appalachian Ohio, the "event brings together a diversity of people from across the country, providing an opportunity for people and organizations re-inventing local food systems in their communities to learn, share and network," according to its news release.

"Whether you are a farmer, processor, involved with farmers or retail markets, a food entrepreneur, advocate or consumer, this three day event will invigorate you with fresh ideas, proven approaches, great connections, and plenty of interaction and fun," the release states. The keynote speaker will be Anthony Flaccavento of southwest Virginia, "an organic farmer who has been working on community, environmental and economic development in central Appalachia for the past 25 years." The conference also includes tours of local businesses.
