Concluding the 2023 California Small Farm Conference, join us at the in-person regional gathering for the San Joaquin Valley! Farmers and local food advocates are invited for our potluck to mix, mingle, and enjoy food and drinks as we decompress in good company from this year's virtual conference. Come share your thoughts, questions, reflections, or just reconnect with farmer friends, new and old.

The San Joaquin Valley Gathering will be held at Yo'Ville Community Garden and Farm. The Yosemite Village Community Garden and Urban Farm Incubator (Yo’Ville) is a 7.5 acre fresh food production space planned and designed to collaboratively enlist and serve the residents of Southwest Fresno. Yo'Ville is located at 872 W Atchison Court, Fresno, CA 93706. Learn more about our host at https://www.facebook.com/permaculturefresno/.
