The Massachusetts Urban Farming Conference (UFC) hosted by the Urban 
Farming Institute and in partnership with the Massachusetts Department 
of Agricultural Resources (MDAR), is designed to advance opportunities 
and address barriers involved in cultivating a resilient and thriving 
Urban Farming sector.
We will convene local and regional experts, advocates, and innovators to 
support and promote urban farming enterprises across Massachusetts. Our 
local urban farming community, along with cross-sector partners, will 
address challenges, highlight successes, and share resources at one of 
the best educational and networking events for this thriving sector.
Yes, it will be virtual, and we will have fantastic keynote speakers and 
knowledgeable practitioners with many networking opportunities.
