The 9th annual Growing Together Latino Farmer Conference is November 1-2, 2023, in California’s Central Valley. This conference will include conference sessions on day one, followed by a farm field day on day two. The National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) and the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) are proud to present this annual statewide sustainable agriculture conference for Spanish-speaking farmers. This conference brings together the Latino/a farming community, the agriculture industry, and advocates for sustainability and agribusinesses for two days of workshops, networking, and learning with fellow farmers.
The first day will take place at the Stockton Agriculture Center and will include abundant opportunities to network with local businesses and organizations. The day will also include a series of presentations from farmers and other experts in the field.
The second day will consist of a farm field day where a tour bus will carry participants to visit two local farms that are demonstrating successful business and ecological management practices. This event will be first come; first served. Sign up early! Space is limited!
