Thank you all for a great Small Farms and Alternative Enterprises Conference in Fort Myers, April 1 & 2, 2016!!
We enjoyed connecting and learning from each other.
We had a great crowd, excellent speakers and moderators, awesome food and venues and very supportive sponsors and vendors!!
At the conclusion of the event we had welcomed 155 attendants, conducted 16 educational sessions, had a small trade show with 13 exhibitors, and celebrated local food by incorporating produce from area farmers to the conference’s menu.
We also conducted a bus farm tour of four are farms and five field workshops at ECHO Global Farm.
Additionally, our kick-off event at Buckingham farms was a success, with 75 attendants.
