Tilth Washington announces 40th Anniversary Celebration

Tilth's celebration and conference will take place November 7-9, 2014.

Raj Patel joins us Saturday morning as the T-40 Keynote Speaker and Mary Berry, Executive Director of The Berry Center, who joins us Sunday afternoon as the T-40 Capnote Speaker. Daughter of Kentucky farmer and writer Wendell Berry who spoke at the first Tilth conference in 1974, Mary continues her family’s mission to bring focus to the plight of our environment and health at the hands of industrial agriculture, while honoring the work of organic and sustainable farmers in an ever-changing rural landscape.

T-40 will be no different than other conferences in that there will be ample opportunity to network after the hard work of learning is complete. The conference will kick off Friday November 7, 2014 with two day-long symposia to choose from plus an all-day information fair. Mealtimes are always perfect for visiting with friends old and new while enjoying delicious organic food. Social events planned for this year include a Friday evening Reception featuring local beer and local bites to enjoy while visiting the Poster Session; the informative and fun weekend Trade Show; and the popular annual Wine Tasting and Auction followed by the never-to-be-missed Saturday Night Dance.
