Transforming the heart of agriculture means transforming our human relationships. How can biodynamic, traditional, and Indigenous farmers and land stewards connect and learn from one another? What steps can we take to build equity, inclusion, and true community in North American agriculture? Orland Bishop, Jim Embry, and Claudia J. Ford will share perspectives on these important questions and engage in thought-provoking dialogue with one another and conference participants. Moderated by Megan Durney.
Update: Unfortunately, Rowen White will be unable to join us as planned for this keynote presentations due to the wildfires in California. Our hearts are with her and all affected by these fires.
We are pleased to welcome Claudia J. Ford to the keynote panel in her place.
