Join the Hoosier Chapter at Old McDonald Conference

The third Annual Old McDonald’s Conference on the Environment and Agriculture will be held Oct. 25-26 at Kentucky State University Farm in Frankfort, Kentucky. The conference aims to raise awareness of confined animal feeding operations, sustainable food choices, food safety, and environmental justice.

Highlights include speakers; music by Reel World String Band; farm tours; all food guaranteed locally grown, sustainably grown, and antibiotic-free; and bonfires each night.

The event is sponsored by the Hoosier Chapter and Cumberland Chapter of the Sierra Club, Kentucky State University, and Kentuckians for the Commonwealth.

Our CAFO web pages will have details as they unfold.

The Hoosier Chapter has a limited number of scholarships available for those in need. Scholarships will be given on a first-come, first-served basis.
