PROGRAM

Food | Ag | Ideas Week is an umbrella for events and experiences led by Grow North and its partners. 

Inspired by the theme The Time Is Now, the Week highlights topics where Minnesota has an emerging or strong leadership position across the themes of Sustainable Agriculture, Food Innovation and Tech, and Food and Society.
