Symposium Tours

 As part of the 2016 Urban Food Systems Symposium registration, participants will have the opportunity to enjoy organized bus tours to see what is happening in the Kansas City metropolitan region.

 

These tours are being delivered in coordination with the 2016 Urban Grown Farm Tour, which is an annual urban farm and garden tour that is hosted by Cultivate Kansas City. Cultivate KC is a partner organization in the Urban Food Systems Symposium and we are excited to show symposium participants all the great things going on in the region.

 

The tours are scheduled to run simultaneously from tentatively 8am to 2pm. Lunch and beverages are included. Below is information regarding UFSS 2016 tours:
