2024 Regional Conferences

The ASCFG will host seven Regional Conferences throughout North America during 2024. The purpose of these two day regional conferences is to celebrate and highlight local excellence and expertise, and to connect ASCFG members with other growers in their regional community. While each gathering will vary in content and format, and will be informed by close collaboration with each ASCFG Regional Director, all events will include a farm tour, educational speaker sessions, and plenty of time to make connections.

We are pleased to share the dates and locations of our 2024 ASCFG Regional Conferences! Please note that all program and registration details will be available by early April 2024.


Members are invited to attend any Regional Conference they wish to, and will not be limited to their region.
