Small Farms and Alternative Enterprises Conferences announced
Announcing Two Regional Conferences
Dear Past Attendee:
You are receiving this email because our records show that you have attended one or more of our conferences in the past. We are excited to announce that in an effort to bring trainings closer to home, the Annual Statewide Conference has grown into regional events to better serve your needs.
The annual state-wide Small Farms and Alternative Enterprises Conference has been a signature event in the Florida farming community since 2009. During these six years (2009-2014), more than 4,000 attendees have benefited from the multiple educational and networking opportunities presented in this annual event.
Building on this foundation, we are happy to announce Five Regional Conferences across the State in 2015 and 2016. These regional events will be designed with your region and your needs in mind. Wherever you are in Florida the conference is coming closer to you.
This year make sure not to miss these two regional conferences:
Northeast Florida, August 14 & 15, 2015 at the University of North Florida Student Union, Jacksonville. Registration Opens on June 1st.
Central Florida, November 6, 2015 at the Mid-Florida Research and Education Center, Apopka.
More information and updates on these events to come. The planning teams are busy working to put together great events for you.
We hope to see you again soon!
The UF-IFAS Small Farms and Alternative Enterprises Team
