Great networking, great speakers. Love the offsite field courses.
I have been attending this conference on and off since the early 1990’s. I have markets in Nevada and the California market managers have helped me and inspired me for all these years. I don’t have much networking in my state and appreciate those opportunities as well as visiting markets and attending the workshops.
I learned a lot about sustainable agriculture in California, made very interesting connections with like-minded people and was inspired to make changes at my company.
It was very informative and educational. It showed me how challenging it is to be a farmer in a drought-stricken state and how innovative the farmers can be.
I was able to acquire information that helped implement new procedures that will eventually minimize risk and work toward sustainability in growing fruit, crops, aquaponics and hydroponics system. . . having a more diversified farm.
It was a wonderful learning experience with many opportunities to meet interesting people. The field course was extremely inspirational. I highly recommend this conference.
I think anyone associated with the farmers markets of California could benefit from these conferences.
