Michael Ableman, keynote at Sustainable Farming Association conference, on regional food systems and sustainability

Here in the depths of February with snow and ice all around, you may prefer to think about green and growing things. You’re in luck. This Friday and Saturday at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, the Sustainable Farming Association is holding its 22nd annual conference.

The keynote speaker is Michael Ableman, founder of the Center for Urban Agriculture in California, and a recognized practitioner of sustainable agriculture and proponent of regional food systems. He has written several books including "On Good Land" and "Field of Plenty.

Ableman's speech is called “Feeding the Future: Stories, Images, and Inspirations from the Frontiers of Urban and Rural Agriculture”
