Its success is measured by both a favorable response from the marketplace and significant positive social impact, as it relates to food security and local economy development.

The NAF2 Nation 2020 Annual Winter Planning Retreat lays claim to this year as well as the next 20 years as “The Roaring 20’s” for community food economies based on urban agriculture in North America and beyond. We believe that as we enter the year of 2020, the urban agriculture movement in the United States has finally achieved mainstream status and will rapidly transform from fringe element in society to a real profitable sector of the economy and food system. As an early advocate, innovator, and subject matter expert in this burgeoning field of dreams, our emerging nationally networked Affiliate system of locally focused consulting groups coordinated by a supportive umbrella entity is a truly unique position in the marketplace. This year’s retreat is designed to prepare us as much as possible for the thrill ride ahead. We are poised to become the “NAF2 Nation” that heralds a new world of food system resilience and helps build a truly hyper local agriculture future. Welcome to the Roaring 20’s! 

Request 

We are seeking support of a second truly national NAF2 Annual Winter Planning Retreat that will continue the process of connecting the respective Affiliate start-up firms through highly qualified leaders that would be coached and trained by the Founder of both AF2 and NAF2 Kwabena Nkromo, as well as experts on critical aspects of business and organizational development.
