Food & Farm Forum and Youth Food & Farm Forum
Alabama Sustainable Agriculture Network. The largest annual gathering of ASAN’s statewide network of farmers, gardeners, community leaders, and good food advocates. Approximately 200 diverse participants from across the state will convene to swap stories, ideas, and wisdom, and to together build a more robust local food system in Alabama. Don’t miss this chance to show your support for Alabama farms, Alabama food, and Alabama communities! The Food & Farm Forum is part conference, part fair, and part retreat or reunion. It consists of peer-to-peer, hands-on, and experiential learning, in the form of workshops, panel discussions, and breakout conversations. The Forum engages people’s minds, hearts, and bodies, regardless of skill level or experience. Parts of the Forum are modeled after the folk tradition of the “bee,” in which community members come together to do shared work while also socializing, learning, and celebrating.
