REGISTRATION IS CLOSED!
Our one-day regional conference, the first of its kind in Oregon, is providing an opportunity for Black-identified growers -- farmers, producers, educators, advocates, and ranchers -- to gather, network, discuss experiences, build strategies, and learn about our history and our opportunities!! This work is a part of a larger effort to combine and share resources available to Black-identified people working, practicing, or doing business around food systems or growing a thriving food economy in the Oregon and SW Washington area. While this is a black-community centered and invited convening, we openly welcome folks who identify as Indigenous, POC, and/or food justice community builders.
This culturally rooted event also serves as an introduction, orientation, and call for participation in the annual OSU SMALL FARMS CONFERENCE held the next day on Saturday, February 23rd, 2019 for detailed technical workshops on soil science, producer skills improvement, market development, and farming infrastructure.
Registration for the Black Growers Gathering is at Capacity! We look forward to seeing you on February 22 in Corvallis!!
