“OEFFA’s 40th annual conference kicks off a year-long celebration and reflection, and you are warmly invited to be part of the festivities! OEFFA’s first conference featured a plenary panel, 10 workshops, and a business meeting. While we’ve scaled up, 40 years later, the conference stays true to its roots, providing an informative and inspiring space for education and networking. From the beginning, the OEFFA conference drew strength from bringing together all those involved in shaping and changing our food system for the better, including ecological farmers and gardeners, consumers, organizations, researchers, educators, and others. Together, we are stronger. We’re planning lots of special anniversary activities, which will highlight our history and our members, and reflect on how far we’ve come, including multi-media pieces created by oral historian Jess Holler, a conference dinner which will raise a toast to our founding farmers and members, and a town hall-style workshop, which will take up critical topics, themes, aspirations, and challenges in the history of Ohio’s organic food and farm movement. While we have much to be proud of, we know there’s still more work to do. Our “Movement” workshop track and our keynote presenters will explore the themes of justice and diversity, which can help shape our work for the next 40 years. We look forward to celebrating this milestone with you!”
