HANDS-ON LEARNING WORKSHOPS (aka “Crop Mobs”)

3rd Annual GO Conference Farmer Mixer
Kick off the conference on the Thursday night prior with another awesome mixer, this year hosted by our very own Alliance and the generous Chef Shaun Doty at his Bantam + Biddy chicken joint. We’ve got the patio to ourselves for our shindig, and B+B will be donating chicken-y and veggie snacks. There’s no cost to attend, cash bar, and you won’t want to miss it.
