Real Organic Symposium: Milk & Money
January 30 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
An interactive virtual series of talks with more than 50 prominent organic farmers, scientists, climate activists, and YOU.
The 2022 Real Organic Project Symposium is a virtual series of interviews with more than 50 prominent organic farmers, scientists, and climate activists.
One ticket gets access to two important symposium sessions:
January 30, 2022, 3-5 pm: Milk & Money explores the impact of the massive influx of industrial-scale dairy into the organic sector. What happens when a few “organic” dairies in the arid West outproduce the thousands of family-scale dairies across the country? What are the differences in production practices? How can the farmer affect the quality of the milk you drink?
February 6, 2022, 3-5 PM: Protecting Organic brings together the farmers and eaters who are building a saner agriculture for a better future. What successful models have brought about real change? How can we multiply their impact? How do we protect what we have worked so hard to build over the last century? What is the impact of personal choices compared to political change to move beyond the fringe into mainstream markets and what will protect us from corporate greenwashing, money, and power?
We’re proud to showcase interviews with:
Michael Pollan, Leah Penniman, Dan Barber, Lindsey Lusher Shute, Paul Hawken, John Tester, Eliot Coleman, Severine Von Tscharner, David Bronner, Dan Barber, Jack Algiers, Doug, and Anna Jones Crabtree, Chellie Pingree, Earl Ransom, Bob Quinn, Helen Kees, Dr. Melinda Hemmelgarn, Dr. Francis Thicke, Dru Rivers, Paul Muller, Bob Klein, Rosie Burroughs, Scott Park, Kevin Engelbert, Jim Durst, Amanda Starbuck, Ed Maltby, Alan Lewis, Amy Klippenstein, Paul Lacinski and much more!
