Hello MI Farm to School Listserv!

Each year, Michigan Food and Farming Systems (MIFFS) hosts the Michigan Family Farms Conference (MFFC), a forum for beginning, small-scale, and culturally diverse farmers to network, learn, and build sustainable family farms. This year we have chosen the theme "Nurturing Resilient Farms - 2020 & Beyond." It gives us great energy to release the Request For Proposals (RFP) for both the keynote speaker and workshops. While the conference happening on Saturday, February 8, 2020 is months away, it will be here before you know it! Even if you do not have a presentation of your own, we would like to hear your ideas for workshops and/or keynote speakers.

We are also excited to announce that MIFFS will be hosting a design competition for a new MFFC logo this year! For more information about the dimensions, file type and how to submit visit the link below. The chosen logo creator will a $50 gift card, receive five free tickets to the conference and recognition across our social platforms as well as at the conference. We look forward to many new ideas for the 17th annual conference.
