Will Harris, White Oak Pastures' 4th Generation and owner, founded a 501c3 non-profit called the Center for Agricultural ResilienceEach day will begin with a farm-cooked breakfast and end with an equally delicious farm-fresh supper.

The CFAR Fundamentals Session, Climate Focus. Our guest speaker for the March session will be Alexis Baden-Mayer.

Alexis Baden-Mayer is a lawyer who has worked since 2005 as the Political Director of the Organic Consumers Association, a network of more than 1 million activists committed to creating a healthy, just, democratic, and regenerative food system. Alexis is a key organizer of some of OCA's most popular campaigns, including the "Monsanto Makes Us Sick" campaign to ban Roundup. Alexis isn't afraid to put her body on the line to call attention to the crisis in our food system. In 2014, the Health Freedom Congress awarded Alexis a Healthy Freedom Award for direct actions she's taken that resulted in her arrest, including shutting down the National Organic Standards Board meeting to protest the weakening of organic standards and entering the White House ground to deliver a petition to First Lady Michelle Obama in support of GMO labels, one of Barack Obama's unfulfilled campaign pledges. Alexis's proudest moment as an activist came in 2016 when Bernie Sanders tweeted a CSPAN video clip of her dumping "Monsanto Money" on the Senate floor to protest the corrupting influence of money in politics.
