Growing Organic Expertise with DMACC at Aaron Lehman’s Farm in Polk City

July 14 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

Free

Aaron Lehman will host DMACC students and others interested in learning more about the U.S. organic movement, the National Organic Program, Midwest organic production options and a range of resources that support organic transition and certification.
Aaron is President of the Iowa Farmers Union and a fifth-generation farmer where he and his family grow corn, soybeans, oats, and hay in both organic and conventional rotations. In the mid-2000s, he and his dad decided to try something different from the traditional two-crop system and began to explore certified organic production to diversify the land and improve sustainability, while increasing net revenue.
