The Real Organic Project 2022 Virtual Symposium: Milk & Money. Here’s what to expect:

January 30, 2022 3-5pm EST: “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 3-5PM EST: “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 in the organic movement? What is the impact of personal choices compared to political change?

Featuring Michael Pollan, Leah Penniman, Dan Barber, Lindsey Lusher Shute, Paul Hawken, Eliot Coleman, John Tester, Severine Von Tscharner Fleming, and of course - a LOT of farmers. Plus live discussion breakouts and one-on-one networking options!
