In its quest to empower the movement for sustainable agriculture in Pennsylvania and beyond, the Farming for the Future Conference came first. In 1992, despite the small number of community supported agriculture (CSA) and organic farms operating in the state, the first Farming for the Future Conference unexpectedly drew 500 participants. The Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture, or PASA, has been organizing the conference as an annual event ever since.
To fulfill its stated mission of promoting profitable farms that produce healthy food for all people while respecting the natural environment, PASA uses its annual conference along with other year round educational programs to provide farmers with practical training and workshops related to such sustainable agriculture practices as organic, biodynamic and grass-based farming.
