Eighth Annual Latino Farmer Conference

The Eighth Annual Latino Farmer Conference will be held November 17-18 in Escondido, California, at local forms and the California Center for the Arts.  This is an annual stateside sustainable agriculture conference for Spanish-speaking farmers.  This conference brings together the Latino farming community, the agriculture industry, and advocates for sustainability and agribusinesses for two-days of workshops, networking, and learning with fellow farmers.

After two years of hosting this conference online, we are happy to be able to bring people together again in person. This year’s conference has expanded to include two full days of education and networking.  Day one will center around farm tours in the Escondido area; day two will include an exhibitor area, networking opportunities, and presentation on topics relating to conservation, organic, and regenerative agricultural production and business management.

The event is held in collaboration between the National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) and the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS).
