Research Poster Session
The Organicology Research Poster Session features projects related to organic agriculture, organic seed systems, or organic systems on a whole. The proposals received for the research poster session will be on display throughout the event.
The tradition and art of saving seed lives on during our Seed Swap. The magic and genetic diversity of organic seed is waiting for you to discover and take home! Learn the fundamental principles of seed saving while communing with others. This year, folk musician, Alice DiMicele, and farmer, Don Tipping will perform live music during the swap. Delicious appetizers and beverages will be served during the event.
How it Works
Bring seeds to share, but neither seeds nor experience are required to join! Come mingle with and field your questions to seed experts, breeders and cultivators within the organic seed community. Friday registrants are invited to come early and join us for this very special event!

We’re taking the CELEBRATION of Organics to a new dimension with live music by Septimus—an absolutely fun, funky, band whose passion for Organic Good Foods is delivered in their lively, colorful music. Change Your Food - Change Your Life!™, a GOOD HEALTH Edutainment Company, helped us secure THE only band that can lay down absolute kickin’ covers of Hendrix, Waters, Marley, The Stones, Womack, Tupac, Gap Band, Bill Withers, along with their original stuff and a portfolio of ORGANIC GOOD FOOD Songs that bring to life the power, the thrill and the soul of organic.

KARAOKE FROM HELL
We're excited to welcome Karaoke from Hell back to the Organicology stage!
You can rock, you can roll, you can jump in front of this live band and SING to that song you know by heart! Join this live karaoke band for tried and true hits, a high energy performance, and make those star-filled dreams come true…at least for one song.
the great debates
It can be raunchy, chockful of inappropriate and often politically incorrect absurdity, but you’ll be in fits of laughter once you experience this lively group of characters pit their organic knowledge against each other. Keep children and those without a sense of humor out of this auditorium, because this arena of wild rumpus shenanigans will have you aching with side-splitting, off color jokes and performances!
What will the crazy, fun characters dream up this year? Stay with us Saturday evening to find out.
At Organicology, it's all about making connections and reuniting with old friends, which is why we have social time! The photobooth will return during the conference for all those not-so-candid pics! And as always, after school there are various hot spots throughout the hotel where you can grab a beverage, make conversation and enjoy the art of social spontaneity. Locations and happenings will be updated on our website and in the final program.
