In today’s rapidly-changing environment, get a glimpse of what might happen to our food and learn what’s being done regionally to sustain our ecosystem — because “Old MacDonald’s Farm Ain’t What it Used to Be.” Among other food-related issues, this moderated panel will discuss stemming genetic erosion of crops, seed breeding, local organic grains, and how these translate to the food we eat. Panelists include Micaela Colley, Executive Director of Seed Alliance; David Granatstein, Sustainable Agriculture Specialist, WSU Center for Sustaining Agriculture and Natural Resources; and Stephen Jones, Director, WSU Research and Extension Center at Mt. Vernon.

Presented by: Sustainable Path.
