What is a Meet & Greet?  It’s a free 25-seat room where groups like FarmStart or the Fibreshed folks or OMRI will announce an open gathering for 1-hour or longer.  Conference guests arriving at the start time & specific room will be greeted by the organizers.
Anyone can attend for an hour while the main Conference noon lunch break is going on – whether you paid for the Conference workshop admission or not (what a great deal).
Certain Meet & Greets are only for specific organic sector activists.  For others, farm consulting specialists will attend.  Some programs are paid: e.g. the BD wine tasting.  Or with programs like the past International Organic Inspectors trainings – these trainings are geared to those in the organic regulatory sector choosing to pay the registration fee.  But in most cases, all the Meet & Greets listed here are set up to be free, open interest gatherings – which means YOU.
