Join Cultivate Kansas City for our twelfth Annual Farmers & Friends Meeting, a gathering that brings together our city's farming and food dreamers and doers.

We share knowledge, we start conversations, we introduce the community's leaders to those who are just getting started, we dream about what a healthy food system for Kansas City could look like, and then we venture out to make it happen. The event features:

  • Opportunities to connect with your local growing community
  • Keynote speakers and announcements
  • Two potlucks meals! Homemade pie for breakfast and a hearty lunch
