Growing Power first hosted this event in 2010. Nearly 1500 participants gathered at the Milwaukee State Fair to share ideas for building healthy and resilient community-based food systems. It included farmers, aspiring farmers, renewable energy experts, urban planners, corporate executives, politicians, academics, chefs, microbiologists, and people from countless other walks of life. One of the great outcomes of the first conference was the cultivation of new relationships, and the sharing of knowledge. This year’s conference will build on our efforts from two years ago. In 2012, we expect to have even more breakout sessions, more speakers, and more tours. We anticipate over 3,000 participants will attend, and 200 of the nation’s most well-known food-system experts will share their knowledge. As you can see, there’s a lot to learn and share! Mark the date, and come help us ‘Grow the Good Food Revolution’. We’ll be waiting for you in Milwaukee.
