Mid America Organic Association Conference

With the influx of interest in permaculture, regenerative growing, soil building, sustainable farming and gardening, there comes a growing number of conferences that are held in the U.S. and worldwide which provide up-to date information and techniques within the organic growing world. One of my favorite conferences to attend is the Mid-America Organic Association Conference which is holding its eighth annual organic and sustainable farming conference on January 25-28, 2017, at the Sheraton Kansas City Hotel at Crown Center in Kansas City, MO.

Nationally recognized speakers include world-renowned gardener Eliot Coleman, Botanical Explorer Joseph Simcox, Moms Across America founder Zen Honeycutt, permaculture expert Matt Powers, NRCS Conservation Economist as well as Chef Sean Sherman (who recently launched the most successful Kickstarter campaign to date for his project, The Sioux Chef), and Emmy award-winning filmmaker Greg Kiger.
