PSA: Small Farms Conference

February 20, 2009 at 9:33 am Leave a comment

It’s not too late to register for the Oregon Small Farms Conference tomorrow (Feb. 21) at the Oregon State University campus in Corvallis. Registration’s cheap (just $35/person on line, $40 at the door) and the conference features a great program of speakers and topics, including sessions on:

  • Simple Ways to Promote Your Farm
  • The Community Food Security Coalition
  • Size Matters: Successful Markets
  • Building a Sustainable Business
  • Renewable Energy
  • Simple Ways to Promote Your Farmers’ Market
  • Secrets to Farmers’ Market Success
  • Food Safety

You don’t have to be a farmer to register and benefit. The OSU Extension Service (yay, Extension) is also encouraging market managers and community food advocates to attend.

Registration information is here – although since it’s tomorrow, you might want to  calling the campus Extension office at (541) 737-2713 before registering on line, just to make sure they have room for you.
