The theme for this year’s conference is “Nourishing and (Re)Imagining Collaboration, Conservation, and Community.” There will be an emphasis on soil health, water quality, and natural resource management but some of the speakers will present a distinct perspective on regenerative agriculture, emotional ecology, drought and climate resilience, and regional food system development. Speakers will also touch on trauma, forms of power and agency, capacity, infrastructure, democracy, and innovation related to agriculture.
