Practical Farmers of Iowa's Annual Conference, Reclaiming Resilience, will examine the current state of our farms and our food systems. This endeavor is not about going backwards in time or unraveling progress. It’s about reclaiming resilience to help family farms survive into the future. Practical Farmers of Iowa’s 2020 conference will explore what’s working well and why, as well as what needs to change. We’ll ask if we’re doing certain things because that’s how we’ve always done them – and if there are better ways to create resiliency into the future.
Learn how to improve soil; increase crop and market diversity; reduce inputs; increase financial viability; increase investment in conservation; enhance wildlife habitat; and work toward thoughtful farm transfer.
Reclaiming Resilience will include ample time to create and strengthen relationships with others. These connections are vital to creating a farming community where we work together for Iowa’s common good. You will leave this
conference armed with ideas about how to strengthen resiliency on your farm, and how to build an agricultural system that benefits farmers, rural communities and our natural resources.
The conference is January 16-20, 2020 in Ames, IA: https://practicalfarmers.org/events/annual-conference-2020/.
