About the Conference

From a meeting of nearly 800 farmers, gardeners and food system activists in Ellensburg, WA, in 1974 to a network of thousands of food system professionals and activists spread throughout the Pacific Northwest, the Tilth movement has had a profound impact on our region’s food culture over the last 50 years. From influencing regional, statewide, and national policy to hands-on programs centered in communities across Washington State, partnership is at the core of everything we do.

This November 14-16, hundreds of farmers, organizations, businesses, wholesalers, food systems professionals, researchers, and educators will join to work, learn, and build solidarity as we honor our history and look forward to our next 50 years. Join us to celebrate, reflect, network and grow!

Helen Atthowe

We are excited to announce our keynote speaker for the this year’s Tilth Conference: writer and agricultural scientist Helen Atthowe! Helen Atthowe has worked for 35 years to connect farming, food systems, land stewardship and conservation. She currently farms and does soil- and natural enemies’ habitat- building research on her new 5-acre farm in Western Montana.

What to Expect

This year’s Tilth Conference will feature three days of activities including more than 25 producer-focused workshops, lectures and panel discussions, a half-day research symposium, a vibrant two-day trade show, engaging national keynotes, a policy roundtable, social events and more.

We’re also excited to host a special half-day Taste of Pacific Northwest Organic Trade Show and panel presentation to help foster connections between organic producers and wholesale buyers.

Tilth Conference speakers present on a range of topics covering a variety of scales, experience levels and interests — from implementing new technology to developing expanding markets; from building food resiliency to creating change through political advocacy.
