Summit 2022 Registration

Advocacy is Empowerment! Agriculture to Urban: Shaping Change in Your Community

As communities navigate change, actively engaging in local, state, and federal policymaking is essential to your community’s success in navigating change. At GrowSmart’s 2022 Summit you will hear success stories and learn the essential steps your community can take to stay ahead.

After the success of last year’s multiple location + hybrid virtual model, and thanks to our sponsors and partners, we will be hosting from our anchor site in Biddeford at Saltwater Vineyard, Pepperell Mill Campus, with a satellite option in Bangor, at Eastern Maine Community College, all connected via high-speed internet, in partnership with Kennebec Valley Council of Governments and Eastern Maine Community College.

Registration Closes at Noon on Tuesday, October 11, 2022. 

Walk-Ins: In-person day-of registration is available until 9:00a.m., the start of the Summit.
