Opportunities and Benefits of Heritage Foods Symposium

This symposium is the first event as part of Santa Fe College and Florida Organic Growers’ Florida Heritage Foods Initiative. This initiative is intended to stimulate the heritage food economy in Florida through efforts of educating growers and consumers on the benefits of diversity in crop varieties, as well as the nutritional and culinary value of heritage foods.

This first symposium will take place at Santa Fe College’s Blount Center in Gainesville, FL on Friday, December 2, 2022 from 9am-4pm. It will bring together farmers, educators, and community leaders who will be hosting workshops, presentations, and talks on entrepreneurship and farming, growing and selling culturally significant crops, food and culture, and integrating heritage foods into curriculum.
