“Feed the world you want to live in” is the theme for the upcoming EcoFarm Conference in Pacific Grove, Calif. The Ecological Farming Assn. will be hosting the 33rd annual gathering – what might be the largest agricultural meet-up in the West – on Jan. 23 to 26.
Farmers, ranchers, activists, students and educators, among others, convene at the conference held once a year to learn about manifesting and maintaining a sustainable and just food system. Attendees can pick from more than 60 workshops with topics covering political, ethical and social issues, such as the Farm Bill, in addition to workshops on fermentation and community supported agriculture (CSA).
The multi-day event will feature artisanal food tastings, an exhibitor marketplace and farmer mixers. There will also be pre-conference events including a bus tour of farms near the town of Pescadero and an all-day butchery skills seminar.
Conference ticket prices vary depending on one day or full conference attendance, meals and lodging. For more information and to register, visit ecofarm2013.org.
