2021 Conference Theme: Cultivating Common Ground

This is EFAO's 8th annual conference, and our 2nd virtual one!

The 2021 theme reflects EFAO’s efforts over the past year to broaden the network of farmers and organizations we work with, and to work to bring more equity and diversity to EFAO as an organization, membership, and community. We recognize that real strength comes from working together and bringing different perspectives and skills to the critical work of building resilient ecological farms and communities.

  • We strongly recommend that you use the latest version of Google Chrome as your web browser during the conference.
  • After you register for the conference, you will receive an invitation to register for Sched, the conference platform. Please register for Sched in order to create a custom schedule, connect with speakers/participants, and easily access Zoom links for each session.
  • Conference socializing will take place on a platform called Wonder, which simulates chatting in the halls after a conference session. Wonder does NOT work on mobile devices. We recommend using an updated version of Google Chrome as your browser.
  • Please email conference@efao.ca for technical support.
