OAK Virtual Conference 2022 is a must for farmers, agriculture professionals, home gardeners and those passionate about building more resilient food systems in Kentucky. Conference sessions provide useful tools, techniques, research and knowledge you can put to use on the farm. The virtual event is back by popular demand in 2022 so our community can stay safe and enjoy all the sessions from the comfort of home! Virtual Conference sessions cover an array of organic production topics, regenerative agriculture, livestock management, current research, policy and food systems change making. Join us and hear from experienced farmers and national speakers covering a range of topics in sessions, Q & A, farmer roundtables, and keynotes. Recordings will be available after the event. A Virtual Trade Show will also be part of the experience, connecting farmers with input suppliers, machinery, financial institutions and educational resources. Access to Recordings for Virtual Conference is now available via registration (not eligible for scholarship).

COVID-19: 

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to challenge, disturb, and even threaten us in ways that are personal and collective.  The OAK Team has worked to maintain shared learning spaces that are open to, and inclusive of everyone in our farming community, and the safety of the whole of us - including the most vulnerable of us - is of primary concern.  For this reason, all attendees will be required to wear a proper-fitting mask indoors. If you do not have a proper-fitting mask, OAK will provide masks free of charge at the registration desk. 

Additionally, if you are experiencing a fever or any other signs of illness, please either take a COVID-19 test to ensure that you are negative before attending the in-person events, or choose to stay home. Review the rest of OAK's COVID-19 Safety Guidelines here.
