TCLF is a proud sponsor of the TOFGA 2023 Conference on January 29th – 31st in Mesquite, TX!
We are hosting the News Media Training with Green Gate Farms as a FREE pre-conference workshop on Sunday, January 29th from 1:00pm – 4:00pm. Register here
We are also hosting the very first Farmers Market Manager Track on Monday, January 30th with a session on How to Create a Welcoming Farmers Market for SNAP Shoppers, a mini-keynote presentation from the Farmers Market Coalition, and a session on Accepting SNAP at Your Farmers Market. TCLF is committed to creating market opportunities for local food producers and by inviting and integrating farmers market staff at the Texas Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association conference there will be promising network opportunities to recruit vendors and ultimately increase the sales of Texas grown produce.
TCLF will also be presenting Making Money at the Farmers Market and Optimizing Your Farmers Market TXFED.org courses as sessions on Monday, January 30th and Tuesday, January 31st. We are grateful for our TXFED collaborators from Farmshare Austin, UTRGV Rural Cooperative Center, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension, and Central Texas Young Farmers Coalition who will be supporting this programming.
In collaboration with HOPE for Small Farm Sustainability, Sue Beckwith will be leading the Beyond Fresh Info Session on Tuesday, January 31st.
Come meet the full TCLF team, visit our booth to learn more about our projects, and join our sessions at TOFGA this year! We look forward to networking and being in community with y’all!
