We will learn about how campus farms are selling to dining services, campus farms that are funded by dining services, institutions who buy local through a purchase order, contract growing, negotiation of vendor requirements, and more! The morning will feature presentations with time for questions, followed by a networking lunch, and then we will have small group discussions to explore potential pilot programs and partners.
