Cascadia Grains Conference

The Cascadia Grains Conference aims to strengthen the role of small grains (e.g. wheat, barley, oats, rye) and psuedo-grains (e.g. quinoa, buckwheat, amaranth) in our regional food economy by sharing the latest science, techniques, and developments, as well as by creating a space in which new business, policy and research relationships can form and existing ones can be strengthened.
