at SUNY College at Old Westbury
9:30 am until 4:30 pm
Plenary Speaker Joel Salatin

Food and agriculture are important to the vitality of the local community.  By choosing to eat locally, individuals can enhance the quality of the food supply, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, bolster the local economy and help preserve agricultural land in the Long Island/ NYC food shed, thereby increasing the quality of our food supply in terms of food security and nutritional value.
