The description (from the above link):
The Second Annual Conscious Eating Conference will inform attendees about the true nature of sustainable food choices. There's a growing awareness of food and its relationship to our planet, our communities, our health, and the animals who share our planet. As we face unprecedented global challenges from climate change to food deserts, we realize that agriculture plays a crucial role in these challenges and that it is our responsibility to make informed and conscious choices. Discussion will focus on issues surrounding backyard chicken-keeping, small-scale farming, "eating local," animal-free farming, sanctuary experience, and vegan living as alternatives to the agribusiness model of food production and animals.
