MIDWEST CSA CONFERENCE: Dec 3 & 4, 2015 in Eau Claire, Wisconsin
Wisconsin Farmers Union, working in partnership with a range of Midwest organizations, will again convene the Midwest CSA Conference, December 3-4, 2015 in Eau Claire at The Plaza Hotel.
With the continued growth of the CSA movement in the Midwest comes opportunities and complexities. The conference will provide a forum for CSA farmers and advocates to come together for deliberative discussion and peer-to-peer learning. Full-group sessions, including a keynote by Steven McFadden, author of the newly released Awakening Community Intelligence: CSA Farms as 21st Century Cornerstones, will discuss shared values of the movement and strategies for promoting cooperation and shared risk among farms and communities.
A set of workshop tracks, each with four workshops, will provide hands-on and peer-to-peer learning for CSA farmers in the areas of:
Beginning CSA Farming ~ Production & Logistics
Building Community ~ Financial Management & Business Planning
