Registration for SAEA Open

Oregon State, in the fall. It’s very pretty, no?

Hold on to your hats, ladies and gentlemen, because it’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for; registration for the Sustainable Agriculture Education Association’s 5th annual National Conference is now open! This year’s conference will take place September 9-10 in Corvallis, Oregon, on the site of Oregon State University. The theme of this year’s conference will be ‘The Campus Food System: A Learning Laboratory’, and as you’d expect, they’re looking for young, strapping, doe-eyed students much like yourself to attend. They would especially like you college students to attend, for the SAEA is rooted in and to the success of college farms; pre-2002 the organization was called ‘The College Farms Sustainable Agriculture Educators Working Group’. I agree with the decision to move to an acronym.

To let them tell it in they’re own words, the SAEA looks to “give sustainable agriculture educators, students, and advocates a chance to share and develop innovations in sustainable agriculture education”. Per their website, the conference will also put an emphasis on networking, at a national level, no less. Very professional. There’s little mention of cost and/or financial help in attending the conference in the presser, but all questions, should you have any, can be directed towards Kristin Pool at Click on the link below to see how far the rabbit hole goes.
