It's as important in our movement as it is in our fields, which is why we've chosen Diggin’ Diversity as the theme for our 2011 Conference. To address this theme, we're fortunate to be joined by keynote speakers Miguel Altieri, Malik Yakini, and Kevin Engelbert.

In addition to our keynote speakers, we've got a full lineup of workshops that also speak to our theme of diversity. In the schedule you'll find a wide range of workshops for young and old, beginning and experienced, and rural and urban.  As usual, there will also be plenty of entertainment.  And of course, we'll have some of the best food you'll eat all year, mostly grown right here in New York State by our members and other generous donors!

High Mowing Organic Seeds’ very own Jodi Lew-Smith, Director of Research and Production, will be a speaker in the Seeds Intensive Training at the Organicology Conference!  Take your seed growing to the next level! You may think you know how to grow seed but we will help you to raise your skills up a notch or two. This intensive is designed for farmers with basic seed production experience who want to improve their skills. Topics will include an in depth look at the fundamental techniques of seed production, including seed crop spacing and timing, fertility and irrigation needs, managing selfers versus crossers, organic disease management and hot water seed treatments as well as determining seed maturation, harvest methods, threshing and  cleaning, and handling basics. We’ll have break-out sessions to explore crop specific seed production methods for lettuce, spinach, onions, carrots, beets, and a variety of Brassica crops. Important information on managing isolation distances, avoiding genetic contamination, and selecting seed crops for local adaptation while maintaining healthy, diverse crop varieties will be covered.

The Organicology Conference is a three day event, meant to educate and inspire.  The first day of the conference consists of five different day-long intensive sessions.  Intensives are meant to help attendees gain a deeper understanding of the topic at hand and walk away with tools to share that promise to further our organic trade from seed to plate.  Day two mixes it up with many diverse two hour workshops designed to be in-depth, but brief.  The day of workshops continues our cross-pollination concept, where we are learning about a multitude of topics of organic interest with many different folks.   Saturday, day three, is an organic trade show designed for you to show your wares, share information, stimulate the brains and taste bud and to continue to network, network, network!
