the 10th annual
Growing the Movement Around Food Quality
As we are growing the movement around food quality, we are also growing the Soil & Nutrition Conference! With so many exciting speakers eager to share their learning and wisdom, we are excited to offer three full days of programming!
Bringing together the collective knowledge of the broader food and environmental movements from the perspective of successful farmers, cutting-edge researchers, enlightened health practitioners, and pioneers of food quality, this conference is the nexus of information and networking for all those interested in coming together around soil and nutrition.
Integrating diverse viewpoints, this year’s program engages growers and gardeners with principles, practices and innovations for ecologically and financially sound farming, and presents the health-conscious consumer and medical professional valuable insights and tools to effectively advocate and select for quality in their local region and food supply.
Absolutely priceless! I am a student pursuing a career in Nutrition and needless to say my mind was completely blown by what I learned and by the amazing people I had the pleasure of meeting. I left feeling empowered and on fire to make a difference. I could not wait to get home and share all that I had learned. It has given me a renewed energy in pursuing a career in this industry and working to make a difference in the state of global health.
