Coronavirus won’t stop the Orange County Ag Summit. The 23rd annual event will be held virtually from February 8–10, 2021. Registration is now open.

For those who don’t have access to the Internet, a limited number of seats are available for viewing the sessions at the Southern Human Services Center in Chapel Hill and the Cedar Grove Community Center. You must pre-register for each day and bring your ticket. Physical distancing and face masks will be required at all times within the two locations. No one will be admitted without a ticket or face mask.

The first day will include sessions that examine the impacts of COVID-19 on various aspects of agriculture, including farm and food workers, food supply chains, and the impacts on restaurants and grocers.

The second day will feature a COVID-19 update from Orange County Health Director Quintana Stewart and Dr. Kizzmekia S. Corbett, an Orange County native who helped develop one of the vaccines. Sessions that day will focus on farm safety beyond COVID-19 and managing stress during the pandemic.

The final day will focus on growing specialty vegetables, including how to identify niche markets, and marketing and bookkeeping strategies to maximize profits.

Each day will run from 8:30 a.m. to closing remarks at 11:30 a.m.

Participants can register for just one day, two days, or all three days.
