Organic Visionaries Unite: Nell Newman to Keynote Organic Summit

Nell Newman, co-founder and president of Newman’s Own Organics, is slated as the keynote speaker at the Organic Summit, June 3-5, 2009, in Stevenson, WA. Newman will present with Bob Scowcroft, executive director of the Organic Farming Research Foundation (www.OFRF.org), to discuss the use of social networking to convey the importance of organic food production. As the daughter of Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward, Ms. Newman has a lifelong commitment to organic and natural food, and established the organic division of Newman’s Own. “Nell is a groundbreaker and long-time supporter of organic agriculture. She has contributed to the evolution of the industry allowing organic products to be found in every household across the country,” said Scowcroft.
