Please join us January 29 and 30, 2016 for the 17th Annual Northern Michigan Small Farm Conference.

at the grand traverse resort


Keynote Speaker: Dr. Daphne Miller

Part clinician, part ecologist, and part anthropologist, Miller approaches medicine with the idea that opportunities for health and healing are found not only in the medical system but in such unexpected places as home kitchens, school gardens, community organizations, spiritual centers, farms, and nature trails. Throughout her career, her teaching, writing, and advocacy work has reflected this perspective. Author of Farmacology: What Innovative Family Farming Can Teach Us About Health and Healing.

Farm School

This year's Farm School features three tracks: Honey School, Mushroom School and Agroforestry School. We are bringing together regional and national experts for these one-day intensives on Friday, January 29. Space is limited.

Youth and Children

There are great programs being planned for youth, ages 8 to 12 and 13 to 18. Check back soon for details.

Daycare is available at the Cub House (the Grand Traverse Resort’s licensed daycare) for a reduced rate. For children 0 to 13. Advance registration required. All Cub House staff are CPR and First Aid certified. The Cub House supervisor and lead teachers have degrees in early childhood development.
