CCOF Annual Meeting & Conference - Organic Hotspots: Revitalizing Rural America

CCOF Annual Meeting & Conference - Organic Hotspots: Revitalizing Rural America

Thursday, February 22, 2018 - 5:00pm to Friday, February 23, 2018 - 5:00pm

The California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF) Annual Meeting and Conference is an annual tradition that convenes the CCOF membership and supporters to celebrate successes and plan for the future of organic. The conference also benefits the programs of the CCOF Foundation: the Future Organic Farmer Grant Fund, the Organic Training Institute, the Bricmont Hardship Assistance Fund, and our consumer education programming. The tradition of this annual educational conference is treasured as a yearly opportunity for the organic community to network, share resources, and learn how to grow your businesses.

The 2018 Conference will explore the factors that have made California a hotbed of organic hotspots activity and discuss ways to encourage the growth of organic hotspots across rural America. We will hear the stories of organic leaders who have contributed to economic revitalization through organic in rural areas, and from those who have seen the impacts first-hand on their businesses and communities. Leaders in policy development, education, and agricultural technology will also share their insights as key individuals helping support these regional economic changes.

Laura Batcha, CEO & Executive Director of the Organic Trade Association, will be speaking at the CCOF Annual Meeting on Friday, February 23rd at 1:45pm, on a panel entitled "Working Hand-in-Hand: Partnerships Between Elected Officials & Organic". Click here to review the full agenda!
