2013 Conference Rocked!

What do you get when 1,150 high-energy farmers and community food activists meet in the middle of the South? Another fantastic Southern SAWG conference! Folks representing 37 states and the Virgin Islands gathered in Little Rock to work their way through a wide-ranging program, poster exhibit and trade show.

For a recap, here's a sample of blogs about the conference:

A lot of information was packed into the 2013 conference. So much, in fact, that a refresher course might be very handy. To that end, some of our presenters have shared links to their presentations. Click here for a collection of presentations. Check back often as additional slide shows are made available.

Visit our Facebook page to see more about the conference, including an album of photos from the conference and take a moment to "like" Southern SAWG.
