Advancements in technologies have increased production, but chemical inputs have been implicated in human and environmental health issues. Learn about different perspectives on sustainable agriculture in this comprehensive two-day workshop on The Sustainable Table. Tour Earth Dance Organic Farms on day one and Monsanto’s Agronomics and Breeding Facility on day two. Everyone has a bite in the future of how food is grown.
