Sustie & Justie Awards
9:00am - 9:45am PT
EcoFarm will present the Steward of Sustainable Agriculture Awards (Susties), the Advocates for Social Justice in Sustainable Agriculture Awards (Justies), and the Golden Pliers Award on Wednesday, March 16.
This year's Justie is awarded to Dr. Isao Fujimoto. Fujimoto passed away this month of March just after receiving the award and hence will also be honored in our Memorial.
This year's Susties are awarded to Agriculture & Land-Based Training Association (ALBA), Richard Smith, David Katz and Karen Van Epen.
The Ecological Farming Association (EcoFarm) developed the Steward of Sustainable Agriculture or "Sustie" to honor people who have been actively and critically involved in ecologically-sustainable agriculture and have demonstrated their long term, significant contributions to the well-being of agriculture and the planet.
The Advocate of Social Justice or "Justie" award honors outstanding individuals who have been active advocates for social justice as a critical aspect of ecologically-sustainable agriculture and food systems.
Please join us as we remember those in the ecological agriculture movement who recently passed away:
Isao Fujimoto, Al Rojas, Anne Saxelby, Bill Reynolds, David Chatfield, Don Villarejo, Gabriel Howearth, Inah Lee Hudson, Judy (Judith) LaRocca, Nick Botner, Pat Kerrigan, Ric Toth, Steven Decatur, Steven Lee Shuman
