Organic Farming Conference Being Planned in La Crosse, WI
USAgNet - 12/05/2019

The nation's largest organic farming conference is returning to La Crosse early next year. Organized by the Midwest Organic and Sustainable Education Service, or MOSES, the 31st annual forum will be held February 27-29 at the La Crosse Center.

"Consumers want more organic food, which means there's a growing need for more organic farmers. But, there's a learning curve to making an organic system work on a farm," said MOSES Director John Mesko. "This conference is an ideal venue for non-organic farmers to learn best practices for organic and sustainable production. It's also where experienced organic and sustainable farmers learn the latest field-proven techniques to implement at home."

Attendees will have a chance to participate in educational workshops and a trade show. In addition to attending the conference, farmers can take an all-day Organic University course to learn in-depth about a topic.

Keynote speakers include Leah Penniman, author of Farming While Black, along with visionary economist John Ikerd.

There will also be plenty of food samples, entertainment and educational resources for people to take home with them.

Early Bird registration for the full conference is $210 through January 7. For more information or to register, call the MOSES office at 715-778-5775.
