Ashtabula Local Food Council is proud to present our first annual Growers Summit, a day-long event for local Growers to network, discuss the challenges of the past growing season, and explore new ways of meeting those challenges. The Growers Summit is open to all area growers interested in meeting their neighbors, getting to know more about other farm operations, and sharing their own experiences.
The Growers Summit will feature three speakers:
Aaron Miller, of Miller Livestock Company, Kinsman, will discuss his pasture-based livestock operation.
Floyd Davis, of Red Basket Farm, Kinsman, will discuss successful season extension techniques employed at his farm.
John Wright, of Red Beet Row, Jefferson, will discuss various permaculture and sustainable farming techniques and how growers can use them in an era of climate change.
The Summit will take place on Monday, November 9th, at Jefferson United Methodist Church. We will open the summit with presentations from our speakers and host open, round-table discussions after lunch. The event begins at 10am and will conclude at 4pm. Light refreshments will be provided, and a catered lunch from Crosswinds Grille is available for pre-purchase ($10/person.) Check-in begins at 9am. Registration for the summit is free.
