Wisconsin Farmers Union, working in partnership with a range of Midwest organizations, will again convene the Midwest CSA Conference, December 7-8, 2017 in Wisconsin Dells at Chula Vista Resort.
With the continued growth of the Community Supported Agriculture (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 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
