"It’s More Than Organic" Community Discussion

As part of the Art About Agriculture 'The Sustainable Feast" Art Show Crossroads in partnership with OSU is hosting a panel of  experts, local producers and locals to discuss what all of us can do to be more sustainable!

Questions to be answered:

  • What is sustainable agriculture?  What is OSU doing in this space and why? 
  • What competitive advantages does sustainability provide for growers and our State? 
  • What should consumers know about sustainable foods and food producers?
  • How can home gardeners, small producers to large producers be more sustainable in their practices?
