Promoting Organic by Finding Common Ground


Workshop audio recording from the 2016 MOSES Organic Farming Conference.


Carolyn Olson
Friday 1b

The best conversations happen when we find something in common with others. How can we find common ground with people who have different philosophies and styles than we do? It’s all in the words we use. Learn about conversation starters and enders, and the art of promoting organic agriculture in conversations over the dinner plate, in the grocery aisle, or on social media.

Carolyn Olson and her husband, Jonathan, grow certified organic corn, soybeans, and small grains on 1,100 acres near Cottonwood, Minn. She has been blogging about faith, family, farming, and food for five years, and has over 1,000 followers on Twitter.
