This winter SEMAP is hitting the road to bring Winter Networking Meetings to a city or town near you! Join other local growers and food buyers to meet new faces, build relationships, and discuss all things agriculture and food. Talk about your business, find new business mentors & partners, and learn best practices to help grow your farm business or food establishment.
We will be providing refreshments, arranging for a short talk by a speaker at each meeting, and providing a bit of information about the programs we run that might help you and your business (check out some of them below). Feel free to attend whatever time and location works best for you and your schedule!
