Join Cultivate Kansas City at the 13th Annual Farmers & Friends Meeting!
 
 
 
At Farmers & Friends, the day is about growing together as a community around local food. We share knowledge, start conversations and introduce the community's leaders to those who are just getting started in the farming business. We also dream about what a healthy food system for Kansas City could look like, and then we venture out to make it happen.
 
Some of the specifics include:
  • Workshops and panels lead by local experts
  • Opportunities to connect with your local growing community
  • Keynote speakers and announcements
  • Two potlucks meals! Homemade pie for breakfast and a hearty lunch
The event is $5 and is open to all Kansas City area farmers, growers and friends.
 
The meeting will start promptly at 9 am, so plan to arrive before 8:30 am to park, check in, enjoy coffee and pie, find a seat and get settled in. Doors will open at 8 am, so you are welcome any time after then!
 
Local experts will be sharing perspectives on decision making on these important topics in our KC food community:
- Where We Grow - How We Sell
- What We Waste - What We Eat
- How We Manage Soil - What We Grow
- What We Use to Grow - Who We Grow For
