11th Annual “World on Your Plate”

If you are into food, not just the way it tastes, but where it comes from and how it is prepared, then you should know about an annual event that is held called World On Your Plate, two-day conference.

For years, organizers of this conference have brought together leaders in the food, farming and sustainability movement, who share their knowledge and passion for a food industry that has, unfortunately, been overrun by the McDonalds and the Monsantos of the word for far too long.

If you care about what is being grown, and what you are putting in your body, then consider attending this conference that will open your eyes to a more thoughtful way of eating and living.
