early bird registration to tackle “wicked problems”

posted August 24, 2016


Earlybird registration for NESAWG’s 2016 It Takes a Region Conference is now open. The Conference, now in its 23rd year, brings together practitioners and professionals from across the Northeast to explore ideas that move us towards a more sustainable and just farm and food system. This year’s conference theme is Tackling Wicked Problems in Food Systems. To learn more, visit http://bit.ly/NESAWG16.

NESAWG’s annual It Takes a Region Conference brings together farm and food systems practitioners across the 12-state Northeast region to learn, debate, collaborate, and innovate solutions to critical food systems issues. Each year, we look at the trajectory of the food and farm movement and the role our network can play in shaping its future. We offer in-depth working sessions that tackle important questions about our regional food system and how to strengthen it, drawing from the collective expertise and wisdom of conference attendees.

We are organizing a mixer in ALBANY for young farmers on November 11 and we need help decorating the space, picking up donations, and generally adding to an atmosphere of merriment and sanity. Want to be involved? Have some ideas to share, some organizer muscles to flex? If you are in NYC and are into food and farming this is a great way to meet some of the up-and-coming crowd who is growing food for your fair city. Contact Greenhorns Outreach Coordinator, Patrick at pkiley1@gmail.com to get into it.
