The public is invited to attend and participate in this 14-week series led by Chuck Francis, professor of agronomy and horticulture. The series runs every Monday, Jan. 9 to April 24.

Participants will have the opportunity to discuss and learn about the growing organic food industry, its popularity in farmers’ markets and supermarkets, the cost of organic foods, the difference in quality from conventionally produced items, food safety and the future of organic foods in our diets.

Francis feels growers, consumers and educators will benefit from a roundtable discussion format about the topics relevant to the food they eat, produce, sell and consume.

The cost is $50 per person for educational materials. Go to http://go.unl.edu/organicfarming to register for the series.
