Journey to the American heartland in Bonnie Hawthorne’s don't-miss documentary, Dreaming of a Vetter World. It features one visionary Nebraska farm family who understood that modern agriculture was ailing, and found a cure. From farmer’s son to soil scientist to missionary and back to farmer again, organic pioneer David Vetter has dedicated his life to a “ministry to the soil.” With camera and camper in tow, Hawthorne leaves her urban comforts in the rear view mirror to learn from the Vetters about what's really going on in the Corn Belt. As interest in regenerating soil explodes worldwide, Hawthorne discovers that David Vetter is way ahead of the game. With both historical context and an eye to the future, Dreaming of a Vetter World shows it's possible to jump off conventional agriculture’s pesticide treadmill. It’s also a story about love, hope and place; an inspiring example of perseverance and doing what you know is right–against all odds.
Now in its fifth year, the Organic & Non-GMO Forum is the source for conventional food and ag businesses to learn about opportunities in the organic and non-GMO industry, and for those in the field to discuss the challenges and advantages it presents. Producers, processors, manufacturers, buyers and more convene for engaging, informative discussions on the practical issues in the supply chain and the challenges in the industry. This event, which has grown three-fold, promises unique insights from leading experts, and unparalleled networking opportunities.
