We’re always excited for March to come around, not only for the (hopefully) warmer weather, but also for the Good Food Festival and Conference hosted each year by FamilyFarmed.org! The three-day conference, held at the UIC Forum March 19th-21st, will feature tons of speakers, food industry experts, and people passionate about growing the local food movement.
