Urban farming is a very hot topic in the country, providing locally grown foods to areas that have little access. The Florida Small Farms and Alternative Enterprises Conference will have a nationally recognized key note speaker, Will Allen to speak about his success in this area.
Allen is the founder and CEO of Growing Power, Inc. in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and is leading the "good food revolution". He was just recognized as a "hero" and one of Time Magazine's 100 World's Most Influential People for his efforts to secure healthy and affordable food for all.
We are so fortunate to have this opportunity to hear Will Allen right here in Florida at the annual conference! The conference will be held July 31 and August 1 at the Osceola Heritage Park in Kissimmee. Registration is open now at http://smallfarms.ifas.ufl.edu
