Have you ever wondered what distinguishes organic agriculture from conventional agriculture or permaculture from agroecology and regenerative ag? We hear these words often in the agricultural community and it can be confusing to distinguish one from the other. Come join us for an evening of intellectual and practical discussion as we hear from five experts in these fields and work to dissect the meanings of these important concepts and practices. Our panel will speak to the significance of these agricultural practices in both their personal careers and in agriculture as a whole.
