Organic Seed Growers Conference
Organic Seed Alliance’s (OSA) 8th Organic Seed Growers Conference drew a record turnout, with more than 500 participants attending the event in Corvallis, Oregon, from February 4 – 6, 2016, and an additional 330 people joining the conference via live webinar. Participants represented 34 states, 10 countries, and 20 universities. Conference co-hosts included Oregon State University, Washington State University, and eOrganic.
The biennial conference is the largest event focused solely on organic seed in North America. More than 80 experts presented on specific topics under the categories of organic plant breeding, organic seed production, enterprise development, and policy.
What is it all about? Here's what our participants have to say about this one-of-a-kind gathering (video below or click here).
“We know system diversity is one of the foundation stones to successful organic production and we have seen a demonstrated commitment from OSA to build that component of diversity relating to seed. I want to ensure my dollars to on-the-ground projects, a place where an emphasis to make an enduring difference is part of the mandate and where my dollars can be leveraged to build a stronger, healthier food system around the world.”
