Growing Power was as much a 'gathering' as a conference, featuring a diverse group of about 1000 people at Milwaukee's State Fairgrounds
I presented on the resource limitations of beginning farmers and how to overcome them. Here are my excellent co-presenters - Amy Mall, a board member of Family Farm Defenders and co-founder of Altgeld Sawyer Corner Farm near Logan Square in Chicago; and Farm Aid’s 'Farmer Advocate' Joel Morton, who organized the session.
