Spring Conference 2022 MEN OGS

Practical, Affordable, Accessible

March 18-20, 2022


We are so excited to announce that OGS is partnering with MOTHER EARTH NEWS to jointly produce our 29th Spring Conference March 18-20, 2022 at Mars Hill University. This synergistic partnership creates a hybrid intersection of mission and values leveraging regional farm and gardening connections with powerful branding and an expanded market to cultivate food equity and diversity initiatives, self-sufficiency, health and well-being, and environmental sustainability in local communities. We look forward to being able to offer our attendees our usual favorite array of robust workshops, with an added bonus of new speakers and vendors joining the community. Both of our organizations have deep roots in the region, and this conference will allow us to leverage our relationships for the benefit of our audience.


As of now, we are planning to come back together in person, and we are exploring whether we might be able to make the conference accessible to those who may not feel comfortable attending in person. This year’s conference will include pre-conferences, 15 tracks, 8 half-day workshops, and an ‘exhibit stage’ featuring shorter talks. Registration will open on December 15th. Updates will be posted on this page, so check back for more soon!
