Bridging the silos of health and agriculture
Farms shape our health through nutrients, soil, water, air, climate, economy, and community. This program helps practitioners, policy makers, educators, researchers, and innovators in medicine, public health, nutrition, and agriculture explore “common ground” to find solutions that nourish people by nourishing the soil. Participants will learn about the complex workings of our food production and distribution systems and their effect on human health.
The 2018 National Association of Conservation Districts Summer Forum and Tour held in conjunction with the Southeast Region Meeting will provide a forum for elected conservation officials, farmers, government staff, industry leaders and agribusiness professionals to learn about the region’s newest projects, programs and policies related to water quality and soil health. Also, national leaders will share issues and updates related to natural resource conservation. The event will allow attendees to exchange information, discuss opportunities for collaboration, learn about successful projects, and troubleshoot challenges. In an effort to connect our national audience with conservation products and services, we will also host an exhibition.
