The 5th Annual New York State Organics Summit: Growing Local Roots will take place March 26-27, 2019 outside Rochester at Casa Larga Vineyards in Fairport, NY. This yearly event engages stakeholders from across the state in facilitative discussion to discuss creative solutions to barriers that restrict the sustainable management of organics materials, primarily food scraps, and to share success stories amongst one another.

 

This year’s summit will focus on strengthening regional connections for diverting wasted food scraps from disposal, overcoming pressing challenges in the organics recycling industry, and much more.
