Wisconsin Ag Connection - 02/19/2014

The nation's largest organic farming conference is returning to La Crosse next week.

Organized by the Midwest Organic and Sustainable Education Service, or MOSES, the 25th annual forum will be held February 27 through March 1 at the La Crosse Center.

Attendees will have a chance to participate in educational workshops and a trade show. Typically, over 3,000 people attend the annual conference.

Featured keynote presenters include Anna Lappe, a sustainable food advocate and best-selling author, and Mark Shepard, a 'renegade' farmer and permaculture guru who will speak on the impact of agribusiness on Earth's climate. They will also discuss the roles of sustainable food and farming in creating resilient communities, protecting biodiversity and promoting health. And Journalist Alan Guebert, who writes the popular syndicated agriculture column 'The Farm and Food File' will speak about the public policies and private-sector support the next generation of organic farmers will need to succeed.

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

For more information or to register, call the MOSES office at 715-778-5775.
