The 2020 Organic Grower Summit (OGS) has been cancelled due to COVID-19. The event that brings together organic growers and producers with supply chain partners and service providers was scheduled to take place on December 9th-10th in Monterey California.
Tonya Antle, executive vice president of the Organic Produce Network, said, “Unfortunately, based on the ongoing monitoring of health advisories, and the current resurgence of COVID-19, we have determined in order to protect the health, safety, and well-being of all Organic Grower Summit attendees that we cancel this year’s event. We look forward to hosting OGS 2021, next December in Monterey.”
The fourth annual OGS was slated to feature an exhibition trade show floor showcasing a wide range of technology, equipment, soil amendment and related supply chain partners connecting with organic farmers, growers and producers. Additionally, two days of information and education on plant and soil health, ag technology and opportunities related to organic growing were on tap for OGS 2020.
“We are so proud of how our industry has reacted during this unprecedented time and look forward to coming together next year. We are looking at putting together one virtual session featuring leaders of the organic growing community that will be broadcast in December 2020, and will have more information in the weeks ahead,” said Antle.
