Registration is now open for the Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association’s (OEFFA) 37th annual conference. Pre-conference intensives will be held on February 12 and the two-day conference will take place February 13 and 14 at the Granville Middle and High schools in Granville, Ohio (Licking County).
As the state’s largest sustainable food and farm conference, more than 1,200 attendees from across Ohio and the U.S. will come together to enjoy keynote sessions with Lindsey Lusher Shute and John Ikerd; nearly 100 educational workshops; three pre-conference intensives; a trade show; locally-sourced and organic from-scratch meals, and more.
“This conference is about working with nature, rather than trying to control it,” said OEFFA Program Director Renee Hunt. “Sustainable agriculture is not only a path for growing right by nature, but for doing right by our communities, public health, and our economy, as well.”
The conference will offer nearly 100 beginner, intermediate, and advanced workshops across 16 tracks taught by experienced OEFFA members, farmers, researchers, and sustainable agriculture leaders from across the country. The workshops cover a range of topics including sustainable farming, gardening, homesteading, cooking, livestock and poultry production, business management, food and farm policy, research, and more.
