Description

Regenerative Supply Working Group

Under our new banner of the Regenerative Supply Working Group we are excited to invite you all to the Summer Working Group meeting in gorgeous Iowa City, IA June 25-27.


At the December meeting we focused on the importance of building soil microbal content, how those little microbes have a huge impact, and the current state of the non-GMO and organic supply chain. To continue and build upon those discussions we will focus on how we move towards action for the regenerative, organic and non-GMO food systems. Experts in soil and human health as well as chemical impacts on food will provide the deep dives for our learning agenda and set us up for conversations to drive our action agenda.

OPTIONAL FIELD TRIP DETAILS:

For those of you able to attend, we are excited to kick off the meeting with a visit to Kalona Organic where we will follow the path of milk from their cows to processing and distribution. Following Gina Asoudegan's presentation this past December we decided to visit Kalona to learn more about the partnership model between Kalona and Applegate and to learn more about how they maintain identity preservation for their organic and non-GMO lines, including feed sourcing.

We will gather at Graduate Iowa City in the lobby at 8am on the 25th to begin our tour, returning to the hotel around 12pm before the meeting commences. On the registration form please indicate if you plan to attend! And, if plan on driving, let us know if you and are willing to drive others to the site visit.
