Lunch

If you plan on purchasing lunch on campus, please pre-pay for a voucher through our registration form. Gladfelter Student Center features two dining halls that will be available to workshop participants for lunch. We encourage folks to eat together and network during lunch break on the second floor Gladfelter in the Canon Lounge. Speakers will have books for sale during this time.

  • The cafeteria on the main floor offers a wide selection of vegetarian and meat entrees, fresh-made salads and dressings, homemade soups, and desserts.
  • The Cowpie Café, located on the lower level, offers ONLY vegan and vegetarian options.

Both facilities source their food from the college garden and farm and offer gluten-free and diary-free options. All attendees are encouraged to network, exchange knowledge, and eat together on the third floor of Gladfelter where each of the Harvest Conference instructors will have a booth set up to sell their goods. Feel free to also bring your own lunch.

Weather in the mountains is very unpredictable. Please come prepared for extremely hot or damp/chilly weather. Make sure to bring water and snacks as needed. Please note that the workshops will be held rain or shine and that there are no refunds.
