Monterey, CA—The 2020 Organic Grower Summit (OGS) has been cancelled due to the impact of COVID-19, according to a press release.

The summit was scheduled for December 9-10. It was slated to feature an exhibition trade show floor showcasing technology, equipment, soil amendment, and related supply chain partners connecting with organic farmers, growers, and producers. It was also expected to offer two days of information and education.

“Unfortunately, based on the ongoing monitoring of health advisories, and the current resurgence of COVID-19, we have determined in order to protect the health, safety, and well-being of all Organic Grower Summit attendees that we cancel this year’s event,” said Tonya Antle, EVP of the Organic Produce Network, in the press release. “We are disappointed OGS 2020 will not go on as scheduled. At the same time, we are so proud of how our industry has reacted during this unprecedented time and look forward to coming together next year.”

Not all is lost, however. Looking to the future, Antle says: “We are looking at putting together one virtual session featuring leaders of the organic growing community that will be broadcast in December 2020, and will have more information in the weeks ahead. We look forward to hosting OGS 2021, next December in Monterey, CA.”
