Candace Roper
Primary Sponsor:Common Hour Committee

Lancaster is a remarkable place to enjoy the local bounty, and farming has had authority here for centuries. There are few things more intimate than what we put on our own plates. Jeff Moyer understands this, and will be bringing to the table his knowledge on revolutionized farming strategies.

“A nation that destroys its soil destroys itself.” Spoken by FDR, this gripping bit of wisdom is one that Mr.Moyer operates upon and poses during his events. Though he is not pessimistic, before proposing solutions Mr. Moyer illuminates the many problem farmers and their land face, as well as the consequences of unhealthy food and practice choices. Snuffing out farms, killing the land, and the obesity epidemic are all woven into this broken system.

With subjects as inherently divergent as these, his presence will be made only more relevant due to our location in Lancaster.
