Scholars do amazing things

EcoFarm Conference plays a critical role in the work that scholars do on their farms and in their communities, serving as a platform for networking and educational exchange. 

Our fundraising campaign is still active, so if you haven't yet donated, we urge you to act now! The more dollars we raise, the more scholars can join us at the 38th annual EcoFarm Conference.

Thursday's scholars can participate in our Intergenerational Farmers Mixer, Seed & Scion Swap, Meet the Experts, and hear groundbreaking Keynote Speakers; John Ikerd and Doria Robinson, along with the day's informative workshops. 

Friday is dedicated to our Spanish-language program in addition to an invitation to Conozca a los compradores!/Meet the Buyers! - a special event to connect with prominent Central Coast produce buyers and hear Successful Organic Farmers Keynote Speakers, Jean-Martin Fortier (Quebec, Canada), Deborah Harley (Pescadero, CA), and Javier Zamora (Royal Oaks, CA).

Full EcoFarm Conference scholars get to reap the benefits of the whole conference experience, starting with Wednesday night's opening Keynotes on Regenerative Agriculture, to Saturday morning's Closing Circle on Asilomar Beach.

Please make a gift to the EcoFarm Scholarship program to provide a solid foundation to beginning ecological farmers. 

Thank you!
