Conference Agenda

WFAN’s mission is to engage women in building an ecological and just food and agricultural system through individual and community power. Our members work every day to fulfill a vision for a food system that supports farmers, eaters, and the environment.

This two-day annual conference is our opportunity to learn from our diverse peers, build a stronger network, and foster connections for long-lasting change. The conference will feature women in our network through regional field tours; day-long intensives; a farm-to-table dinner;  art + story gallery featuring work by women farmers; creative community building; and workshops.

Parking is located in a garage underneath the Holiday Inn’s main parking lot. Take the elevator to the lobby to find the registration desk.

Registration will take place in the lobby of the Holiday Inn, next to the hotel registration desk. The table will be staffed from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, and 7 to 10 a.m. on Saturday, to check you in, take walk-in registrations, and accept payment for items you may have already registered for. We prefer checks (made out to WFAN) or credit cards.
