Grower’s Own Conference on Friday evening & Saturday, Feb. 1 - 2

The Grower’s Own Conference is an amazing opportunity to hear directly from fellow farmers. Friday evening opens with photographic farm tours from Idaho farmers, as well as our guest farmer Laura Masterson. These virtual farm tours are a favorite of past attendees, where innovative ideas on marketing to modified mulch layers are often revealed.

Saturday features concurrent discussions in the round, with pre-selected topics through the voting process (see registration form). Guest farmer Laura Masterson will share her experience and expertise to launch several of the sessions. 

The morning will start with one large discussion as a full group on a topic of interest to all, which introduces new attendees to the format and gives everyone a chance to hear from the full group. We will then break into two to three smaller groups to discuss different topics.

Sessions at Grower’s Own focus on organic methods; anyone interested is welcome to attend.
