SC Farm to Institution Summit Announces Stefanie Swackhamer as 2018 Keynote Speaker
Tiger Corner Farms' general manager will speak at the event happening Aug. 28-29 in Greenville
As builders of aeroponic farms housed in recycled shipping containers, Swackhamer's company takes agriculture to new levels with its innovative approach to farming. In her keynote address, Swackhamer will dive into how Tiger Corner Farms has grown from a small manufacturing operation to its growth plan for 2018 -- and how innovation is key to that expansion, its processes and overall company outlook.
Swackhamer will also speak on her own experience as a former high school teacher. She will offer advice on applying innovation in any career field, including the farm or institution perspectives.
This year's summit brings together key farm to institution players to further encourage local procurement, reinforce healthy, local food education, and provide the skills to establish a garden, farmers' market or community supported agriculture (CSA) program on site.
