"Our 27th annual Practical Tools and Solutions for Sustaining Family Farms Conference will be held January 17-20, 2018, at the Chattanooga Convention Center in Chattanooga, Tennessee again. As one of the first convention centers in the nation to incorporate sustainable practices such as natural lighting, recycling, rainwater catchment and donating leftover food to local food banks, we feel right at home at the Chattanooga Convention Center."
