Webinar on Organic Farm Profitability and Biodiversity

The Organic Center will be hosting a free webinar on "Biodiversity and Profitability on Organic Farms - Environmental and Economic Benefits of Organic Practices" on Wednesday, July 1 at 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time.

A growing body of science shows that organic farming supports more biodiversity and can bring in more income than conventional farming, highlighting the environmental and economic benefits of using organic practices. What is less understood is how these benefits are affected by the farming landscape around organic operations. Join us to learn more about the study’s findings. 

Presenters:

  • Amber Sciligo, PhD, Associate Director of Science Programs, The Organic Center
  • David W. Crowder, PhD, Associate Professor of Entomology, Washington State University
  • Olivia Smith, PhD, Postdoctoral researcher, Entomology Department, University of Georgia
