Welcome to UFSS 2018

The 2018 Urban Food Systems Symposium will be held August 8-11 at The Graduate Hotel in Minneapolis, MN.

This symposium includes knowledge on: urban agricultural production, local food systems distribution, urban farmer education, urban ag policy, planning and development, food access and justice, and food sovereignty.
