The Kirschenmann Lecture
We launched the Kirschenmann Lecture in June 2015 to honor our board president Fred Kirschenmann, to mark his 80th year and to celebrate his influence on sustainable agriculture.
This annual event is dedicated to exploring ideas and issues important to the future of food and agriculture, and celebrates the work and influence of Fred Kirschenmann.
