Speakers with various backgrounds in food and farming share their insights and expertise—some of the leading thinkers of our time, as well as those who have fostered innovative and far-reaching food-focused programs.
This format invites dialogue between audience members and builds on ideas both from TEDx speakers and within our local community. Ample time will be given for attendees to meet each other and look for new synergies and new ideas to help bolster the sustainable food movement.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
