What is the Sunshine Farmers Conference?
The SSFC is a gathering of farmers, agency folks, and interested community members who are concerned about the present and future of growing food regeneratively. The name comes from the desire of each of us to be Sunlight Farmers. Each of us makes decisions every day that allow our farms (or backyards) to capture the most or least amount of sunlight possible. It is our responsibility to foster a system that captures the most possible sunlight 365 days a year. A plant’s ability to capture sunlight feeds not only the plant, but also the life below the ground and in turn animals, insects, and ultimately human beings.
Who Should Attend?
This conference is designed for anyone who is interested in learning about the health of the soil and how that translates into health for plants, animals, and humans. The health of the soil affects each and every person who eats and in order to capture the most sunlight we need to foster the underground world. There is no questioning that our health is on the line.
