Description


Attend our the COABC 2018 Conference in Abbotsford! February 23-25th at the Quality Hotel Conference Centre we are celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the COABC and we have a thought-provoking line-up of presentations beginning Friday evening and ending Sunday at noon.

Our theme this year, inspired by unpredicted weather and a need to adapt as food producers to these meteorological events is, “Bioregionalism: Creating Resilience in a Changing Climate.”

We invite you to join us to meet our Keynote Presenter Dawn Morrison on Friday Evening suring our Opening Reception. Dawn Morrison is the Founder, Chair and Coordinator of the B.C. Food Systems Networking Group on Indigenous Food Sovereignty. After her words, we will enjoy organic hors d'oeuvres with ingredients donated by our own local organic growers and a fantastic organic ale tasting, hosted by Crannog Ales.

Saturday morning, our second Keynote Presentation will kick off the day: Kent Mullinix is Director at the Institute for Sustainable Food Systems at Kwantlen Polytechnic University where he works with a multidisciplinary team conducting applied research to advance sustainable agriculture and food systems, as a foundational and integral element of sustainable society.

Stay tuned for our other presentation summaries emerging on the conference workshops and presenters pages. We work hard to provide educational workshops and presentations that span the interests of every field within the organic world, in others words - there's something for everyone an a lot of knowledge in the room.
