Sustainable Agriculture Education Conference, Kentucky

The 4th National Sustainable Agriculture Education Association (SAEA) conference August 4-5, 2011 University of Kentucky, Lexington

The Conference is co-hosted by the College of Agriculture, UK Sustainable Agriculture Program and the Virginia Tech Civic Agriculture and Food Systems Program.  The conference will be held in the heart of Kentucky's Bluegrass region, on the campus of the University of Kentucky in Lexington. The conference theme, Cultivating Sustainable Agriculture Education: Growing a Collaborative Legacy, is focused on addressing the means of achieving sustainability in agriculture through authentic educational experiences across the food system: schools, universities, farms, and communities. Please consider joining other faculty, staff, and students in the only national-level forum focused on the teaching and learning of sustainable agriculture! In addition to networking with other faculty, staff and students working with sustainable agriculture programs across the country, this conference offers numerous field trips to farms around the Bluegrass, service learning activities, farm-to-table cooking opportunities, a materials exchange, a pre-conference track for land grant university programs, and loads of local food. True to the innovative, participatory nature of SAEA conferences, we'll be spicing up your traditional conference fare with student panels, round table discussions, Anthony Flaccavento as the keynote speaker, as well as panel and poster session.
