5th Sustainable Agriculture Education Association Conference
September 9th & 10th, 2012
Post Conference on September 11th
At Oregon State University in Corvallis, Oregon
Join us to explore this year's conference theme:
The Campus Food System: A Learning Laboratory
Held in the heart of Oregon's productive Willamette Valley, this conference will give sustainable agriculture educators, students, and advocates a chance to share and develop innovations in sustainable agriculture education.
We will discover how campus food systems are and can be utilized as a laboratory to enhance students understanding of the importance of sustainable production and the complexity of local, regional, and global food systems.
In the tradition of SAEA's four previous conferences, this event will focus on networking and providing participants with opportunities to develop tools to take home to their campuses and communities. Come individually or as a group and use the time to revolutionize sustainable agriculture education in your community.
More details and call for abstracts to come shortly. Stay tuned.
