Description


The LFFC 9th Assembly will be held in Cedar Glen Outdoor Centre Schomberg from March 20th and 21st 2018. The assembly brings together co-operative managers, farmers and food system developers to learn from each other.

Highlights of the upcoming 2018 LFFC Assembly

  • Over 20 sector specific workshops geared to co-ops

  • 25+ leading co-op speakers

  • Exciting new marketing opportunities for co-ops

  • Silent Transformation screening


Attended by food and farming co-ops from across Canada, this conference is an opportunity to connect with peers from the sector, build new connections and learn from each other. Relationships fostered at the assembly continue for years as co-operators work together to overcome challenges and strive for success together.



Program

The workshops planned at the Assembly are all geared towards identified needs of our members. The goal is to balance practical business training with forward thinking system change content to keep us inspired.

Special Events: Silent Transformation Film Screening Tuesday March 20th 7pm :

https://vimeo.com/229041971


This is a film about the transformative power of the co-operative enterprise model. As the modern economy increasingly denies vast sectors of the population basic amenities for decent life, this co-operative spirit is as critical as ever. However, over the years the co-op sector has become insular and poorly understood.


A Silent Transformation sets out to explore the innovative self-help efforts of different communities across the Province of Ontario. By addressing their needs collectively they are helping to regain the radical vision of co-operation.
