    Sustaining Small Farms 360 Degrees Small Farm Conference 
    November 6-7
    Student Services Center Ballroom

    University of Maryland Extension at UMES hosts the 12th annual Small Farm Conference November 6 and 7 on the UMES campus.  This year a change of venue, to the Student Services Center, provides plenty of room for an extraordinary event.

    What hasn’t changed is the mission of the conference, which is to provide a venue for producers, aspiring farmers, landowners and supporters of agriculture to network and learn about opportunities and strategies that promote farm profitability and sustainability as well as successful home gardening.  To be clear, beginning and experienced gardeners will feel right at home.
