Corvallis, OR – 2012

The 5th National Conference on Facilitating Sustainable Agriculture Education

Setpember 9-10 | Corvallis, OR

Join us to explore this year’s conference theme:

The Campus Food System: A Learning Laboratory

Held in the heart of Oregon’s productive Willamette Valley, this conference will give sustainable agriculture educators, students, and advocates a chance to share and develop innovations in sustainable agriculture education.

We will discover how campus food systems are and can be utilized as a laboratory to enhance students understanding of the importance of sustainable production and the complexity of local, regional, and global food systems.
In the tradition of SAEA’s four previous conferences, this event will focus on networking and providing participants with opportunities to develop tools to take home to their campuses and communities. Come individually or as a group and use the time to revolutionize sustainable agriculture education in your community.

Please see the “Travel and Registration”, “Call for Abstracts”, Call for Educational Materials” and “Sponsors” links on the left for more information.

The agenda is set for a great conference! Presentation topics will include beginning farmer education, experiential learning, and student farm operations. Be sure to register before August 22nd at noon to ensure your housing and ability to partake in the field trips and dinners catered by local chefs.

After Wednesday August 22nd at NOON we can no longer guarantee dorm availability or space in special events. So register today to get the full experience!

See you in Corvallis!
