PASAbilities Award Series
PASA thanks our Permanent Business Partner, Kimberton Whole Foods for their sponsorship of the PASAbilities Award Series. Their dedication to sustainability and community involvement has had a tremendous impact on the foodshed.
Every year we heard from numerous conference participants, both old and new, that people wanted to hear more from some of the true experts sitting with them in the audience. The Farming for the Future Conference is one of the few events held anywhere each year that is packed with sustainable leaders from throughout Pennsylvania and, indeed, all across the country.
In 2011, in celebration of our 20th anniversary, we brought a new innovation to our conference that takes advantage of the seasoned “star power” we enjoy among our members and close friends. In the closing plenary session on Saturday we feature not one, but two speakers who share the platform as this year’s winners of our Sustainable Ag Leadership Award and the Sustainable Ag Business Leadership Award! These awards honor those individuals and businesses that are the most notable sustainable ag leaders and promoters in Pennsylvania and beyond.
Award winners are selected by a committee on PASA's Board of Directors. They consider those individuals and couples and businesses who have been nominated by PASA members. Nominations are solicited from our members in our Passages Newsletter in advance of the conference each year.
