Event Details

Together we can help to define SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE.  

The Idaho Center for Sustainable Agriculture (ICSA), will host a 2nd annual Regional Sustainable Agriculture Conference (also being called the 2013 Ag Innovation Symposium) on November 14, 2013 in Nampa, ID.

The full day event will bring together farmers, ranchers, dairy operators, backyard gardeners, restaurant operators, government officials, industry leaders and advocacy groups from around Idaho.  The conference will educate the public, and define a Sustainable Agriculture future that balances environmental, health and farmer profitability concerns.

There is something for everyone at every level of interest in sustainable agriculture, whether you are a concerned shopper or a farmer wanting to learn profitable land management alternatives.

Featured keynote speaker Wenonah Hauter, Executive Director of Food & Water Watch, is also the author of Foodopoly: The Battle Over the Future of Food and Farming in America. Her book examines the corporate consolidation and control over our food system and what it means for farmers and consumers.

The conference agenda includes three concurrent interactive workshop sessions exploring topics of soil management, water management, composting, livestock grazing, introduction to permaculture and more. To view the full list of topics and session, please see the detailed agenda.

The featured panel will explore the facts and myths of GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) that exist in our food staples, such as corn, soy and grains. The diverse and professional panel will represent both sides of the GMO debate.

The conference will also feature an exhibit hall to provide companies, advocacy groups and any other organizations the opportunity to connect with attendees and network professionally.  Space is limited vendor booth sales and managed on a first-come first-served basis.
