February 13-14, 2019, will bring the 3rd annual Organic Grain Conference to Champaign, IL. The OGC is the largest event in Illinois dedicated solely to organic grain education and networking!
The 2019 conference will build upon the amazing first two years by increasing the number of break out sessions from two to four and growing the trade show to 25+ vendors.
Highlights from the 2018 conference
Last year was an amazing success with over 145 farmers, researchers, advocates, and industry experts gathering to network and learn about the organic grain industry, certification, and risk managment. The conference featured expanded break-out sessions on economics & decision making, and soil health, an industry trade-show, and a local beer and spirits mixer.
We were honored to host Dr. John Ikerd, sustainable economist and professor emeritus from the University of Missouri, who delivered the keynote address, "Agroecology: Science, Social Movement, or Farm Management?", exploring the soil health and eco-ag movements and their role in improving our communities, lives, and economy.
