Organic Seed Alliance (OSA), along with co-hosts Washington State University, Oregon State University, and eOrganic, will hold the 8th Organic Seed Growers Conference in Corvallis, Oregon, from February 3 – 6, 2016. The conference features presentations, panel discussions, and networking events around the theme of “Cultivating Resilience.”
The conference kicks off with two full-day events: an organic seed production intensive for farmers on Wednesday, February 3rd, and a tour of organic seed operations in the Willamette Valley, home to a premier seed-growing region and industry, on Thursday, February 4th.
The conference is the largest event in North America to focus solely on organic seed systems. Session topics range from organic plant breeding, seed production, and distribution, to enhancing policies that support the growth and integrity of the organic seed sector.
