Cascadia Grains EAST Conference Pilot
Washington State University Food Systems Program, University of Idaho Extension Community Food Systems, and LINC Malt will co-present a Cascadia Grains EAST Conference Pilot Program from 9 am - 12 pm at the 1912 Center in Moscow, ID. Using a short mini-conference format to demonstrate the Cascadia Grains Conference structure, this pilot program will be used to gather feedback from participants in order to create the framework for a potential Cascadia Grains EAST Conference in 2019.
The Cascadia Grains Conference is committed to revitalizing a grain economy in the Cascadia biogeographic region (WA, OR, ID, BC and Northern CA). Our mission is to convene and connect growers, processors, brokers, investors, and policy-makers across the value chain, provide a platform for the latest science, techniques, research, market opportunities and hands-on learning and cultivate an economically viable network of market opportunities for locally-sourced value-added products.

ABOUT THE DAY:
We will begin at 9 am, with everyone participating in a HOT STEEP MALT ANALYSIS in collaboration with LINC Malt and the WSU Sustainable Seed Systems Lab, contributing to their research on breeding malt for flavor. From there this condensed day of programming will focus on three areas of interest within the regional grain economy:
1. BAKING/RESTAURANTEUR - with George E. Skandalos (Maialina) and Craig Morris (Western Wheat Quality Lab, WSU/USDA-ARS)
2. BREWING - with Graham Lilly (Hunga Dunga Brewing Co.) and Aaron Hart (Moscow Brewing)
3. VALUE ADDED - with Brian Estes (LINC Malt), Members of the GRAIN SHED, Richard Scheuerman (Palouse Heritage), James Wahl (MJW Grain), and Glen and Julie Call (GF Blends)
Informal lunch on your own will follow at 12:30 pm at Maialina (walking distance from 1912) and an informal networking pub crawl at Hunga Dunga and Moscow Brewing from 5 - 7 pm -- they are opening their doors just for us!
