About the NGFN Conference

Since 2012, the Wallace Center has been convening leaders from across the good food movement for a comprehensive, practitioner-driven conference to share inspirational ideas, build professional connections, and learn practical skills and innovative approaches for creating resilient and inclusive food systems.

At the 2020 NGFN Conference, we are looking to take food systems change and movement building to the next level.

 The Foundation Stone Conference is the pinnacle of Rudolf Steiner's esoteric work. Connecting ourselves with its impulses is essential if we want to realize anthroposophy in our daily practical activities.

Rudolf Steiner attaches such importance to the meditations of the Foundation Stone Conference that he asks us that these meditations "may never leave us again." (He doesn't say that often or anywhere else for that matter.)
