Join CCOF and our members for Organic Generation – The Next Era, our Annual Meeting and conference in Fresno, California on February 26-27, 2019. This year’s event will focus on the next era of growth for organic and future generations of organic producers and consumers.
Who will be the organic producers and consumers of the future? What opportunities lie ahead for organic? Where will organic production rise? How will organic adapt to embrace new technologies, skills, and markets? We hope you will join us in Fresno to add your unique perspective and voice to the discussion.
The event will bring CCOF members and supporters to Fresno, California, home to generations of organic farmers. There, the program will examine the ongoing growth of organic and explore the predicted future for the sector.
