The EFAO Conference is an annual event that draws farmers and supporters across the food system for four days of intensive learning, idea-sharing, networking and celebration.

The 8th annual EFAO Conference will take place from November 29-December 2, 2021, online in a virtual format.


The Conference theme for 2021 is Cultivating Common Ground.

What participants are saying:

“The EFAO Conference is an inspirational experience for farmers, and eye-opening for all those involved in the experience of those who have been at it longer.”

There is no greater feeling than being surrounded with like-minded people. Knowing that we are working collaboratively as part of a larger web of people who understand the issues and are willing to educate themselves to work towards solutions is utterly life-giving.”

Last year’s conference delivered on what it promised: an inspiring and educational ecological growers’ conference right here in Ontario. I walked away with new ideas, new friends, and new perspectives on ecological agriculture. Can’t wait to be inspired again!”
