The Environmental Permitting Summer School has been held for the past 30 consecutive years and is attended by more than 850 attorneys, consultants, engineers, state and local government officials, developers, landowners and others with a strong interest in environmental issues in Florida.
In-spite of the incredible line-up of speakers, the organizers of this years event decided to include me. I sure do hope I can be 1/2 as good as those scheduled to present. If you are in the Ft. Lauderdale area in July and have a concern for Florida agriculture, register to attend this conference.
I will be part of a panel of three moderated by a member of the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. Below is a summary of the program, click here for the full listing.
AGRICULTURE’S ROLE IN PROTECTING WATER QUALITY AND QUANTITY
Agriculture faces the critical issues of water quality, use, and conservation, all while meeting the food production needs of a growing world population. This course will discuss strategies used by the Florida agricultural community to address those issues, measures implemented to improve water quality, the role of agriculture in water supply planning, unique issues faced by producers in the Everglades Agricultural Area, and the transformation of agriculture by rapid advances in technology. This is unlike any other panel—you will not want to miss it! Instructors: Stan Posey (Moderator), Valerie Seidel, Danny Kushmer, Jeff Sumner
