We plan to have an opening reception on Monday, February 22, a full-day tour on Tuesday, February 23, and educational sessions and exhibitors on Wednesday and Thursday, February, 24-25.  The conference is expected to include a workshop for novice growers as well.  One focus of the conference will be agricultural policy and legislation; attendees will be able to lean about issues and policy and how they can make their voices heard, and have the opportunity to visit congressional offices on February 25.  We are watching closely to see if the status of the COVID-19 pandemic will allow the conference to proceed. If you are interested in becoming an exhibitor or receiving updates about the conference or alternative plans, please contact NARBA to be added to our E-mail list.
