The Community Initiatives in Sustainable Agriculture (CISA) Conference is being held April 5-7, 2013 at Lawrence University and Riverview Gardens in Appleton, WI. The conference is aimed at young people who are interested in sustainable agriculture.
Over the past two years we have organized the Student Initiatives in Sustainable Agriculture (SISA) Conference, and we have noticed a trend: the very same young people who spend countless hours devoted to student farms and gardens while attending school do not go on to farm after graduation. Many pursue non-agricultural careers or take on agricultural support roles as opposed to becoming producers. We are developing CISA to bridge this gap. The conference will build confidence in sustainable agriculture as a viable and worthwhile pursuit.
Our mission is to provide the necessary community, resources, and experience to establish and support new farmers. In addition to building confidence in sustainable agriculture and providing a venue for young people to engage in conversations and educational activities, CISA is the launching point of our Community Farm Incubator Program. The details and plans for the Community Farm Incubator Program will be presented at the conference.
