2011 SSAWG Conference

The Southern Sustainable Agriculture Working Group (SSAWG) returns to the Chattanooga Convention Center for its 20th Annual Conference “Practical Tools & Solutions for Sustaining Family Farms.”  The conference begins Wednesday, January 19 for 2 days of pre-conference activities that include mini- and short-courses, seed swaps and tours of area organic farms, including Sequatchie Cove Farm, Crabtree Farms, and Circle S Farm.  The conference and trade show opens on Friday, January 21 with concurrent educational sessions, networking opportunities, exhibits, and celebrations.

This is a great opportunity to learn about sustainable farming, whether you are looking to grow your vegetables with less chemical intervention or are considering starting your own organic farming operation.  The conference also gives you a chance to meet many of our successful organic farmers and visit their operations.
