  • South Puget Sound Community College (map)

CascadiaNow! is excited to table and join the 4th annual Cascadia Grains Conference, being hosted January 9th at South Sound Community College in Olympia, Washington by the Washington State University and Oregon State University, and bringing together hundreds of individuals, organizations and businesses for this lovely, one day event. 

About the event:

THE CASCADIA GRAINS CONFERENCE brings together farmers, processors and end-users, as well as investors, brokers and local government officials to support rebuilding a grain economy west of the Cascade Mountains in Washington, Oregon, and British Columbia through three value-added enterprises – brewing and distilling, baking and other food uses, as well as animal feed.

●  Farmers learn about grain production, connect with scale‐appropriate buyers, and learn strategies on increasing demands for cereals used for poultry and livestock feeds, artisan breads, brewing, and distilling.
●  Processors & end-users get an inside look into grain production, quality, and brokering relationships to get the grain you want and need.
●  Investors, brokers & local government officials get the scoop on rising investment and policy opportunities.

Workshops, hands on classes, and panels on the latest science, trends, networking, and more on grains west of the Cascade Mountains. 

The 4th Cascadia Grains Conference will be held at the South Puget Sound Community College in Olympia, WA on Saturday, January 9th, 2016. Please see the PROGRAM page for more information on the schedule and speakers.
