Montana Organic Association 2010 Conference
What is very exciting for this year’s annual conference is our keynote speaker, Maria Rodale, who is the CEO and Chairman of Rodale Inc., the world’s leading multimedia company with a focus on health, wellness, and the environment, and the largest independent book publisher in the United States. Rodale is the granddaughter of J.I. Rodale who is considered to be one of the founders of the organic agriculture movement in the United States. Rodale Inc. reaches 70 million people worldwide through brands such as Prevention and Men’s Health; through books such as The South Beach Diet and Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth; and through numerous digital properties. Ms. Rodale is founding editor of the company’s newest online venture, Rodale.com, which features the latest news and information about healthy living on a healthy planet, as well as her blog, "Maria's Farm Country Kitchen." Ms. Rodale is the author of three books. Her most recent work is titled Organic Manifesto: How Organic Farming Can Heal Our Planet, Feed the World, and Keep Us Safe. Organic Manifesto cuts through the confusion and misinformation to provide an indispensable and highly readable look at why chemical-free farming unquestionably holds the key to better health for our families—and the planet. Her book will be the basis of her conference on Friday evening, November 5th and will be followed by a book-signing and social gathering.
In addition to this keynote speaker event, a day-long conference will follow on Saturday, November 6th, which will include a plenary panel session with Ms. Rodale as well as six educational sessions on varying topics of interest to organic farmers, consumers and retailer as well as a luncheon speech from the Montana Department of Agricultur.e
