ASAN’s Regional Food & Farm Forums

September 29, 2016 @ 9:30 am

Wind Creek Casino in Atmore
United States

ASAN’s annual series of Regional Food & Farm Forums will convene farmers, gardeners, community leaders, and good food advocates to cross-pollinate and learn from one another, in four locations around the state (see below).


The Regional Forums are training and networking events that bring together small-scale and sustainable farmers, gardeners, community leaders, and good food advocates. Each Regional Forum consists of roundtable discussions on a wide variety of food- and farming-related topics, an experiential learning component (such as a farm tour or mini-workshop), and a locally-sourced meal.

These events are made to be accessible to people of all levels of skill and experience, with the goal of creating a platform for peer-to-peer knowledge sharing and relationship-building within the region where each Forum is held (and across the state). Through the Forums, ASAN seeks to create the spark for collaborative relationships that can flourish and grow even after each event has ended.

The Regional Forums are ASAN’s anchor events series, and if you’ve ever been to one, you know that’s for good reason.

  • Thursday 9/29: Wind Creek Casino in Atmore (in partnership with the Poarch Band of Creek Indians)
