Budding-FarmersChildren’s Programming is returning in 2015 and will be led by Monica Irwin of Budding Farmers. Children ages 3-12 are invited to register for this special programming, focused on the idea that all kids should know where their food comes from. Note: Children’s attendees must be potty trained. Ages 2 and under are welcome to attend the Annual Conference for free but will be the responsibility of their parents.

The venue at St. Ben’s is a familiar, centrally located one that’s easily accessible. Lunch is not included with registration; instead, you’ll enjoy a lengthy break, during which, you may eat at St. Ben’s, walk to one of the local-foods restaurants in St. Joe, or bring a sack lunch. The idea is to give you the freedom to network at your own pace, and to take advantage of the quaint surroundings.
