The kickoff for the 4th annual conference will be a reception Friday, December 5 at Vanderbilt’s Dyer Observatory.

A full day of workshops will be offered on Saturday, September 6 from 9am to 5pm. Preliminary plans include workshops related to

  • Backyard and community gardening
  • Soil and compost
  • Economic and business models and opportunities
  • The effects of different approaches to farming on the environment, including climate change
  • Famous local chefs offering classes and demonstrations in Vanderbilt’s “demonstration kitchen”

The day’s events will also include

  • a locally grown, chef-made lunch, and
  • a farmer’s/chef’s auction.

Following the workshops, Saturday evening 6pm-10pm, a locally grown, chef-made dinner will be offered, complete with live music, at a location to be determined.

Sunday morning at 10am, there will be a tour of a local farm, still to be determined.
