annual producers summit
A convening of mile high farmers to create a vision for coming year.
Each year, we organize an inclusive gathering for farmers, producers, and invited food advocates in the Denver Metro Area to shape the future of urban farming in the Denver metro area. This planning summit is our visioning creation event for the year, not an educational conference.
Watch for details of our next Denver Metro Area Producers Summit in January 2022.

why we gather
Success for independent producers and the systemic conditions to support our sustainability requires collaboration. That's why we organize in solidarity and with local urban producers and food advocates to strategize ways to increase the vitality and resiliency of urban farming in our region.
This interactive planning summit offers space our grassroots community to voice concerns, needs, and dreams for the future of farming in the Denver metro.
