Over the last few weeks, the Small Farm Center has been busy trying to put together all the final details of the November 6th Tri-State Farm & Food Conference in Huntington. We have some great presenters on board, including professors, Extension Specialists, business leaders, and even the WV Deputy Commissioner of Agriculture, Bob Tabb. We are so excited about bringing some of the lessons we share annually at the Small Farm Conference in Morgantown to the city of Huntington.
Organizations helping to put this on include West Virginia University, West Virginia State University, Ohio State, and Kentucky State University Extension Services. Also, Unlimited Future, Ebenezer Medical Outreach, SCORE, and the Mountwest Technical & Community College Culinary Institute are included in our lists of active and much appreciated partners.
The schedule of classes and registration can be found on the Small Farm Center’s web site (http://smallfarmcenter.ext.wvu.edu/events/farmfoodconference). Along with that information, interested individuals may register for the conference online or by downloading and sending in the hard-copy brochure.
The registration is only $20 and covers attendees’ costs for the entire day of classes. In addition, break-time snacks and lunch will be provided. But the best part of the snacks and lunch is that the menu, as with all Small Farm Center conferences, will be comprised of completely local food. As the conference celebrates the wonderful changes Huntington is making in its food system, the Center wants farmers in the area to know how much we appreciate them and how bright the future of this tri-state region really is.
The brochure on the event page offers readers a little background about the conference and Center. In addition, some lodging options and class topics can be found. We’d love for anyone interested to be able to come, so please don’t hesitate to contact us with any and all questions or concerns.
We look forward to seeing you in November!
