Future Harvest 20th Anniversary Conference

  • 3501 University Boulevard East Hyattsville, MD (map)

Join FHCASA January 17-19, 2019 for Growing Our Future Harvest: FHCASA's 20th Annual Conference! One of the largest sustainable ag conferences in the lower Mid-Atlantic, this robust winter gathering brings together farmers, chefs, advocates, and foodies for 3 full days of learning, networking, and good food.

We encourage you to take advantage of Future Harvest CASA membership as it discounts your winter conference registration, discounts year-round field programming, and gives your voice to Future Harvest policy and voting at our annual Membership Meeting. Purchase a new membership, renew your membership, or check if your membership is current on their website HERE! New memberships and renewals can also be purchased with your conference ticket at check-out on this site.

Items of Note for 2019

  • New this year: full-day Thursday intensives for in-depth learning! Thursday pre-conference sessions are stand-alone - these tickets can be purchased separately on this registration page under "tickets." Read full intensive descriptions on their website HERE!

  • They will once again be offering a one-day ticket option (for Friday or Saturday).

Tracks & Session Changes

  • They will once again be offering Farmer to Farmer Chats: informal, audience-driven “chat” session where farmers can enjoy peer-to-peer problem-solving and brainstorming. There will be very short or no presentations at these sessions. Farmers can talk about what works for them and what doesn’t while learning new ideas from all who attend these roundtable discussions.
