As the oldest and largest ecological agricultural gathering in the West, the EcoFarm Conference meets every year to create, maintain, and promote healthy, safe, and just food farming systems. With over 1,500 attendees, the three days yield myriad opportunities for networking with colleagues, discovering the newest ecological agricultural development and techniques, and building skills for us as individuals and together as a community.

This year we are Raising EcoFarmers' Voices with over 60 workshops featuring a comprehensive array of technical sessions for farmers, ranchers, handlers, marketers, activists, students, and educators. With our generous food donors and delicious menu created by Angela Karegeannes of A Fork Full of Earth Organic Catering, meals in Crocker Hall are delicious and satisfying. Evening events include tastings, mixers, live entertainment, and more. And our annual EcoFarm Awards Ceremony on Friday evening celebrates giants in the sustainable agriculture community, always an inspiring event of the conference.

The Ecological Farming Association invites you to be a part of EcoFarm 2012!
