Voices from the Field: 25 Years in the Field
Thursday evening, January 28, 2016
5:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.

This will be the first of a series of activities this weekend to reflect on and commemorate the achievements in our field over the last 25 years. The sustainable food movement has come a long way in the past 25 years through the work of you, me and tens of thousands of others working at all levels — farm, community, state, regional and national. With this 25 Years in the Field event, we’ll hear from a sample of those who, through a diversity of avenues, have a long history of contributing to the growth in sustainable and organic agriculture and local foods. We are honored to have Wendell Berry, author and farmer (KY); Alex Hitt, Peregrine Farm (NC); Janie Simms Hipp, Univ. of Arkansas School of Law (AR); and Andrew Williams, The United Christian Community Association (AL) sharing their unique perspectives with us. We’ll learn what keeps them laughing, motivated and inspired.

Door Prizes! To add to the celebratory mood, we’ll give away 25 exciting door prizes over the weekend, the first few will be given out during this event! Must be present to win.
