About the Conference

Events begin Friday with a one-day symposium on advanced organic farming practices. A welcome reception and value-added farm product tasting precede dinner and evening workshops. New this year, Tilth Producers offers a series of Spanish language workshops on both Saturday and Sunday. Dr. E. Ann Clark offers her keynote Saturday morning on finding the common ground between organic and sustainable agriculture. The keynote will be followed by the Tilth Producers’ annual meeting and board elections. Nominations for board positions will be accepted from the floor of the annual meeting. Saturday afternoon brings workshops, then evening celebration — a retailer and farmer meet and greet, organic wine tasting, trade show, silent auction, banquet and dance. Sunday brings three full sets of workshops, after which the conference ends at 3:00 pm.
