We’re improving the SPUR event registration process.
SPUR has launched a new ticketing system and we're asking you to register for each event that you're planning to attend. This will help us keep you informed of any changes that may occur and enable us to better tailor our programming to your interests.


This program was originally scheduled for February 5.

Small farms provide the lifeblood of much of our region’s food system, providing amazing produce, meat and dairy to wholesale buyers, restaurants, farmers’ markets and community-supported agriculture boxes. But these farms, some of which are mere acres in size, are threatened by encroaching development, especially in Santa Clara County. A new report by the Santa Clara County Food System Alliance, Small Farms, Big Potential, offers an in-depth look at small-scale agriculture viability in the South Bay. Come hear more about their findings and what you can do in support.
