The poster features two people engaged in farming activities, with text highlighting various aspects such as plant-based food and soil health. It encourages attendees to sign up for the event, set to take place on February 26th. The poster emphasizes the importance of growing power and serves as a call to action for community involvement.

You’re invited to the second annual Growing Power conference! Co-organized by Katal, Growing Power is a workshop series focused on farming and power, taking place on Saturday, February 24, 2024 at Wesleyan University in Middletown. The event showcases local experts who will teach us some basic growing, fishing, beekeeping, power-building skills and so much more. Register today!

 At last year’s conference, attendees joined workshops about methods of social change, growing food on your porch, chicken-keeping, and more. People left with new skills and new connections. Many took home herbal blends or a fishing license. It was an amazing conference and we’re so excited to convene again in February.
