14thAnnual Alaska Sustainable Agriculture Conference
 
November 4-8, 2018 – BP Energy Center and SpringHill Suites University Park, Anchorage, Alaska
Join us in Anchorage!  The theme of this year’s conference is: Farming Alaska from Peak to Coast.
 
The Annual Alaska Sustainable Agriculture Conference brings farmers, ranchers, researchers, Extension agents, and others together to learn from one another and to find ways to continue to develop and improve the agriculture industry in Alaska. As with all events sponsored by Western Sustainable Agriculture Research & Education (WSARE), there is a particular emphasis on innovation and education about sustainable agricultural practices appropriate for Alaska. 
 
This year’s conference will feature a Plenary Session and Technical Sessions the first day of the conference (Monday November 5th), followed by symposia and technical sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday.  Topics covered during the conference range from climate updates and seaweed farming to livestock production and rhodiola growing. On Sunday November 4, there will be a Pre-Conference Produce Safety Workshop hosted in cooperation with the Department of Environmental Conservation. Later, on Thursday November 8th, there will be a Post-Conference Ag in the Classroom Workshop.  Participants can select how many days of the conference they would like to attend and whether or not they would like to attend the Pre- or Post-Conference Workshop. There will not be an additional fee to attend either of the workshops.
 
The last day for early-bird registration fees will end on October 28.  Conference fees can be refunded in full through October 28. Beginning on Monday October 29, the registration fee will increase by $25 per person.
 
We hope you will join us!
