Growing Power's National-International Urban and Small Farm Conference 2016

  • Growing Power Winter Market 13111 West Silver Spring Drive Butler, WI, 53007 United States (map)

Every two years, hundreds of people from around the world travel to Milwaukee to participate in an intensive three day conference that covers urban aquaculture, urban farming, planning strategies, education, youth programming, food policy and food justice. Participants include: farmers, academics, chefs, policy makers, organizers, and people from countless other walks of life. Our conference theme for 2016 is Let's Scale it Up! Growing Food and Farmers: Best practices in growing, distribution and community building. It is time for the Good Food Revolution to scale up and really push ourselves to move beyond just one garden or one market but how can we make things better for ourselves, our neighbors, and our world.
