Montana Organic Association's conference approaching

The Montana Organic Association is hosting its annual conference Dec.7-9, at the Mansfield Convention Center in Great Falls.
The Montana Organic Association is gathering its members and inviting the public to join them in celebrating the organic movement that came about thirty years ago. Montana now ranks first among states in the production of certified organic wheat and ranks second in organic production of all grains, peas, lentils and flax.
The conference keynote address will be given by Dr. Stephen Jones, a wheat breeder and the Director of the The Bread Lab. Stephen has a PhD in Genetics from the University of California at Davis and teaches graduate courses in advanced classical genetics and in the history and ethics of genetics. More than forty speakers over the three-day conference will also include Dr. Jennifer Swanson, University of Providence (formerly called University of Great Falls); Dr. Pat Carr from the Agricultural Department of Montana State University, Dr. Bruce Maxwell, Professor of Agroecology and Co-Director of the Montana Institute on Ecosystems; and Dr. Bob Quinn of Kamut International.
Area farm and facility tours are a staple of MOA conferences and this year participants will tour Prairie Heritage Farm, Wilcox Farms, and Timeless Seeds. Thursday, Dec. 7 at 7 p.m., two films will be screened: “Unbroken Ground” by Patagonia Provisions, and “Bringing it Home,” a film about industrial hemp
