Saturday Night Events

Conference Mixer with the Exhibitors

5:15-7:30 - Exhibitors' Hall, Davis Center, 1st and 2nd Floors

Our popular conference social gathering is back! Enjoy appetizers and wine and beer selections while you chat with friends and visit with the exhibitors. 

This year we’re excited to feature Edith Gawler & Bennett Konesni sharing old-time fiddle tunes, Swedish dance tunes, and farmer’s ballads & hollers—plus a community sing with the participants from the work song workshop, in collaboration with the singers from Cate Hill Orchard! 

The Community Art Project and the 4th Annual Seed Swap will also be happening during this time. 

Hors d’oeuvres are generously provided by our friends at SugarSnap Catering. Cash bar.


4th Annual Seed SwapSeed Swap Packets from High Mowing Organic Seeds

Hosted by our friends at High Mowing Organic Seeds, the Seed Swap is the perfect place to expand the biodiversity of your farm or garden. 

Please bring your clearly labeled seeds to share! An expert from High Mowing will be on hand to answer questions, and we’ll provide packets for you to take home your new seeds.
