9th Annual Conference
The 9th Annual OAK Conference: “Healthy Soils, Healthy Farms: Reshaping Kentucky with Organics” will be on March 6 & 7, 2020 in Louisville, Kentucky.
This conference is expected to bring together more than 400 participants, including farmers, academics, government agencies, consumers and businesses from Kentucky and beyond to continue the momentum in building a stronger and healthier food system. Our program features keynotes, a trade show, farm tours, short courses, a festive reception and silent auction, and more than 60 educational workshops. From the experienced farmer to one who is new to the field or garden to those who want to learn more about how to go organic and hear about regional agricultural research, these workshops have something for everyone.
We are excited to offer your business several opportunities to reach your most targeted audience and at the same time support organic farmers and consumer education. All Exhibitors and Sponsors have the opportunity to promote products or services to Kentucky's organic growers and consumers.
