2021 KRC Farm & Food Conference Series


February 5, 2021 – Pollinators on the Plains

May 7, 2021 – Local Foods and Food Systems Resilience; Farm to School

July/August, 2021 – Soil Health to Human Health (Including a focus on mycorrhizal fungi.)

November 2021- We are hoping that perhaps we will be able to meet in person again next November. Fingers crossed! Stay tuned!!

As with so many things in life recently, our annual in-person farm and food conference could not go on as planned. We have been working hard to figure out how best to bring you the information and education and connection that our conference traditionally offers in this new reality we find ourselves living in.

We have landed on the notion of hosting a series of mini-conferences online throughout the year. We feel this will allow us to provide high-quality content on a wide range of topics while limiting health risks and screen-time burnout.

This format will allow us to delve deeper into a number of topics and to spread our connection to you over more occasions. We are hopeful that an in-person get together could become an option during the year and are leaving space open for that eventuality.

We will be focusing in on pollinators in February, local food systems resilience and farm to school in May, the connection between soil health and human health in August (including a focus on mychorrizal fungi), and are leaving November open to see how the year unfolds.

Our conference series will include a SARE track, along with inspiring keynote presentations and breakout sessions to further your knowledge of and enthusiasm for sustainable agriculture and robust local and regional food systems.
