2022 Conference

Thank you to all our speakers, sponsors and attendees!

Since 1999, Future Harvest has gathered leaders in regional agriculture for our annual winter conference where farmers come together for expert-led sessions, networking, business and crop planning, trend forecasting, and more. Together, we can continue our important work to advance agriculture and learn from one another. We’ve seen the members of our region’s foodshed come together online in new and exciting ways – with enthusiasm, collaboration, and a willingness to share expertise – and we had a wonderful time re-opening our virtual space to facilitate this. If you attended the online conference and would like to return to the space to watch the recordings, CLICK HERE and use the login and password you created for the live event.
