Organic Confluences 2021-2

The Organic Confluences Conference brings together farmers, scientists, extension agents, industry members and key policy influencers to address large-scale challenges that the organic sector is facing. 

For 2021-22, the Organic Center collaborated with the USDA ERS and Purdue University on a virtual conference series and hackathon examining agricultural technology (AgTech) in organic. The conferences examined potential opportunities for technology to support the organic sector, pitfalls when it comes to access and equity in AgTech, historical and current examples of AgTech exacerbating the pre-existing structures of racism in the food system, and methods for analyzing AgTech’s fit within organic ideals. The first part took place in December 2021 . The second part of this conference, focusing on Equity and Access in AgTech, took place on February 10, 2022.

The conference was virtual, followed by a hackathon, in collaboration with the Gathering for Open Ag Technology (GOAT), which took place at the MOSES annual meeting with regional hubs throughout the US. Scroll down for the agenda and recordings.
