Marbleseed, formerly known as the Midwest Organic and Sustainable Education Service (MOSES), is a 501c3 nonprofit committed to supporting farmers in their transition toward sustainable, regenerative, organic farming systems that are ecologically sound, economically viable, and socially just.

We work in community with human-scale farmers to support peer-to-peer learning with free and farmer-led programs, print and digital resources, and in-person events that support thriving regenerative and organic farms and food systems. Marbleseed is widely known for hosting the Marbleseed Organic Farming Conference, established in 1989, it’s the largest organic farming conference in the United States.

To schedule an interview with Marbleseed staff, a Field Day host farmer, or a speaker at the Marbleseed Organic Farming Conference, please contact communications@marbleseed.org.
