We are pleased to announce our keynote speaker, Kyle Garner, CEO of ORGANIC INDIA. Mr. Garner will present on:
Agriculture Innovation, Protecting Small and Family Farms and a Vision: Challenges Facing Organic Agriculture and Trade.”
Organic India is a leading mission-driven manufacturer of herb-based wellness teas and functional herbal supplements. Since 1999, Organic India has worked directly with thousands of family famers in India, creating sustainable communities through fair-market agriculture, access to healthcare, education and gender equality and empowerment programs. ORGANIC INDIA products are certified organic and wildcrafted on over half a million acres of traditional and converted farmland throughout India.
In the morning of our annual farm tour, we will give you an up-close view of our 280-acre organic farm, which has been pioneering organic, regenerative agriculture in central Nebraska for decades. Walk the fields with us, and see some of what we have learned. The tour will also include a chance to tour Grain Place Foods, the organic grain processing facility on site.
If you cannot make it for the whole day, you are welcome to join us for a part!
We will offer a lunch on the farm, made with organic food from the Grain Place, as well as other local sources. Our meal will be prepared by Hummingbird Catering from Lincoln. Tickets are required for the lunch–they are available online in advance of the tour day for $15.
After lunch, we will feature our keynote presentation by Kyle Garner, with time for Q & A afterwards.
