About the conference

from the conference page

For 35 years, the Carolina Farm Stewardship Association (CFSA)’s annual Sustainable Agriculture Conference has drawn farmers, foodies, researchers, educators, and activists for a weekend celebration of innovation in local sustainable agriculture. Educational workshops and panels, inspiring talks, and tours by industry leaders are interspersed with social opportunities, exhibits, and networking.

This year’s Sustainable Agriculture Conference will feature more than 50 live-streamed workshops over four days. These workshops are a mix of formal presentations, panels, discussions, and Q&A’s with 140+ speakers from the Carolinas and beyond.

We’ve spread out the schedule such that only four workshops are happening at one time, with plenty of breaks in between.

The best part? You don’t have to choose one workshop over another – conference registrants will have access to recordings of all the sessions for up to a year after the event!
