Organic Resiliency In A Changing World
December 7-9, 2017, at the Mansfield Center in Great Falls, Montana

Behind the scenes at the Montana Organic Association, the Conference Committee is hard at work event planning for the 15th Annual MOA Conference, which will be held December 7-9, 2017, at the Mansfield Center in Great Falls. This year’s theme is “Organic Resiliency In A Changing World.” We’re excited to present Keynote Speaker 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. The Bread Lab is a combination think tank and baking laboratory where scientists, bakers, chefs, farmers, maltsters, brewers, distillers and millers experiment with improved flavor, nutrition and functionality of regional and obscure wheats, barley, other small grains and beans.

Area farm and facility tours are a staple of MOA conferences and this year will continue the tradition. We will have a live and silent auction, with entertainment provided by Jim Sargent.
Dr. Jennifer Swanson, Dr. Pat Carr, Carmen Fernholz and Dr. Bob Quinn are all scheduled to present in conference sessions. An impressive lineup of topics and speakers are filling the agenda and more details will be available soon.

Chandee Bomgardner will provide catering using locally sourced, organic ingredients.

MOA has arranged for lodging at discounted rates at Laquinta Great Falls at $84/night plus tax.

Mark your calendars for December 7-9 and visit MOA’s website or Facebook page for the latest information. Registration will open in mid-September. Please direct your registration questions to Patti at (406) 333-1054.

Sponsor and Vendor opportunities are available; please contact Susan at 406-274-4869.
