Farm to Table international Symposium 2014 

  The Farm to Table international Symposium (aka "F2Ti") aims to bring together leading practitioners in the farm-to-table movement for discussion of key issues including sustainable seafood and urban farming. The second edition of the symposium is Aug. 2-4 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. Edward Avalos, U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Under Secretary for Marketing and Regulatory Programs, is the closing keynote speaker Aug. 4. Avalos is expected to address the Farm Bill and its impact on small farmers, regional food systems and organic agriculture, as well as his efforts to increase "buy local" movements in communities across the country.

  The symposium is hosted by the Southern Food and Beverage Museum (www.southernfood.org) and the LSU AgCenter (www.lsuagcenter.com) and it includes workshops, film screenings and panel discussions. For the full symposium schedule and to register, visit www.f2t-int.com.
