October 5-9, 2020

A big thank you to everyone that attended our sessions. We had some great conversations throughout the week getting to know some of our Southern Illinois farmers and experts. We got a first hand glimpse into their businesses, learned a lot of great information about their practices, techniques, struggles, accomplishments as well as resources about our food system! Most of all, we learned how important it is to continue to support LOCAL!!
