OAK Conference Series 2022

Thank you to everyone who participated in the 11th Annual OAK Conference - a three-part Series in 2022! The OAK community adapted to the unusual year and planned this conference series to deliver high-quality content, while buffering the uncertainty that comes with a large conference center during a global pandemic. Team OAK extends huge gratitude to all who attended one or two or all three of the Virtual and in-person Conferences that spanned the early months of 2022. 


The learning continues - watch all the sessions (for free) on OAK's YouTube channel! Agendas and speaker details are available below. Conference sessions covered an array of production topics, pest and disease management, soil health, regenerative organic agriculture, current research, livestock management, marketing, and food systems change-making.
