Washington State University will celebrate the 20th anniversary of its Center for Sustaining Agriculture and Natural Resources at a free, public symposium at the Pullman campus on December 6.

The symposium, which begins at 2 p.m. in the Ensminger Pavilion, will focus on the results of the center’s research projects, current projects, and future directions, and will include an update on the Eggert Family Organic Farm, one of the largest organic teaching farms on a university campus in the United States.

Following locally sourced refreshments at 4 p.m., a panel discussion will be held on creating a sustainable future for agriculture. Miles McEvoy, deputy administrator of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Organic Program, will take part.

The event will conclude with an address by David Montgomery, author of Dirt: The Erosion of Civilizations.
