Lynne and I share our excitement about our media coverage of the 2010 Florida Small Farms Alternative Enterprises Conference on July 31st and August 1st in Kissimmee, Florida.
We introduce the conference keynote speaker, Mr. Will Allen, founder and CEO of Growing Power, Inc. of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. We talk about Will Allen’s expertise in urban agriculture and his great achievements in the development of national and global community food systems.
We talk about the conference organizers and hosts, the University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences and Florida A&M University and their Small Farms Focus Team, and their educational and research support for Florida’s approximately 48,000 small farms.
Our guest interview is with Dr. Robert Kluson, PhD. Extension Agent, UF/IFAS Sarasota County Extension Service. Dr. Kluson provides us with an excellent overview of this year’s conference and the support and value it provides to Florida’s small farmers and Florida’s communities.
