Two events of possible interest and relevance to the FCCM’s membership are happening in Fairbanks this week:
the Sustainable Agriculture Conference and Organic Growers’ School (PDF), Tuesday and Wednesday, March 17 & 18, at the Princess Riverside Lodge.
the CSA Roundtable, a gathering of CSA operators (or farmers who are thinking about going to this model) and brainstorming session.
Producers and consumers both may be interested in these events. The retail perspective is where the FCCM comes in, and we may soon be working with local CSA farmers, organic growers, and others interested in sustainable agriculture.
