Seventh Annual Iowa Organic Conference

Registration is now open for the 7th Annual Iowa Organic Conference to be held Nov. 19, 2007, at Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa. The conference will take place at the Scheman Building on the Iowa State University campus.

The Iowa Organic Conference’s reputation is growing. Martin Kleinschmit, the Center’s organic transition specialist and an organic farmer, said, “This is a very good conference, with workshops that fit the needs of those thinking about or beginning the transition to organic production.”

Topics include Transitioning to Organic Farming, Improving Organic Livestock Health, and Marketing Organic Products. A new “Local Organic” campaign will also kick-off, focusing on local foods and information on getting more local and organic foods into schools and food services.
