Clif Bar/Tuskegee/The Organic Center Virtual Event Focused on Increasing Organic Acreage & BIPOC Cultivation in the US Southeast
11:00 am - 3:00 pm ET
In 2022, the Foundation for Food & Agriculture Research (FFAR) in collaboration with Clif Bar and Tuskegee University announced a $2 million endowment to support the advancement of organic agriculture and farming practices.
As one of the first activities under this partnership, FFAR, Clif Bar, Tuskegee and The Organic Center are hosting a virtual event on December 1, 2023, from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. ET.
With a specific focus on the Southeast region of the United States, the objectives of the event are to:
- Gather information about the current organic regional landscape.
- Engage with stakeholders such as organic and organic-aligned researchers in the 1890s community, BIPOC organic farming communities, farmer groups, and other federal and non-federal partners.
- Create a dynamic space for discussion among a wide range of stakeholders.
- Identify barriers to organic production in the Southeast as well as opportunities for organic research, with a focus on BIPOC farmers.
Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
The event will be recorded, and the recording will be shared on this page shortly after the event concludes. If you have questions about the event, please contact Dr. LaKisha Odom at the Foundation for Food & Agriculture Research.
