National Conference Not to Miss, April 3-5, St. Louis, MO

Every decade, the national Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) program hosts a national anniversary conference, and 2018 is the 30th Anniversary year.

SARE and the National Center for Appropriate Technology (whose project, ATTRA, is a resources many farmers depend on) are collaborating on the anniversary event, Our Farms, Our Future Conference, April 3-5 in St. Louis, Missouri. During the conference, MFAI’s Margaret Krome will join National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition’s Senior Policy Adviser, Ferd Hoefner, for a session on sustainable agriculture policy.

MFAI is proud of our long history of protecting and building funding for SARE; we’re proud that our staffer Margaret Krome sits on the NCAT Board, and we’re excited to take part in this once-in-a-decade national event. We hope to see you there.
