ASAN Food & Farm Forum: December 8-9, 2017 at Camp McDowell in Nauvoo, AL
The ASAN Food & Farm Forum is the central annual gathering of ASAN’s statewide network of farmers, gardeners, community leaders, and good food advocates. Approximately 250 diverse participants from across the state will come together for a weekend of “cross-pollinating” and collaboration to build a more robust local food system throughout Alabama.
The Forum will be held on December 8-9, 2017, at Camp McDowell in Nauvoo, AL (near the Walker/Winston County line).
The Forum is part conference, part fair, and part reunion. Portions of the Forum will be modeled after the folk tradition of the “bee,” in which community members come together to do shared work while also socializing and celebrating.
The Forum will consist of peer-to-peer, hands-on, and experiential learning, in the form of workshops, panel discussions, and breakout conversations. The Forum will engage people’s minds, hearts, and bodies, regardless of skill level or experience.
Note: Forum programming begins the morning of Friday 12/8 and goes through the evening of Saturday 12/9. Participants are encouraged to consider arriving Thursday evening and staying through Sunday morning. When registering, participants will be able to reserve a box dinner that will be available for pickup Thursday evening (12/7) when they arrive and check in.
