Farmworker Association of Florida says
Don't miss out - register today!

The forum provides an opportunity to share the current science and policy information and discuss local, state, and national issues around issues of pesticides, health, the environment and worker safety.

General admission is only $45, and $20 for students with current ID, which includes access to all sessions and workshops. Registration price also includes organic refreshments on Friday, and a full day of organic meals on Saturday, plus organic beer and wine!

This year’s conference will focus on agricultural justice, including the impact of pesticide use on human health and the environment, particularly as it relates to farmworker protections and organic agriculture. Biodiversity, pollinator protection, and other relevant issues for Central Florida, including West Nile virus, pesticides in schools and hospitals, and genetic engineering will also be covered.

The conference, including a tour of the Lake Apopka area culminating at an organic farm, runs from the afternoon of April 17 through the evening of April 18, and brings together scientists, policy makers, farmworkers, and public health and environmental advocates to interact and strategize on solutions that are protective of health, the environment and workers.
