The organic farmers are the key stakeholders who need the retooling of the supply chain to retain more economic activity within Central Illinois. The aim of the regenerative agricultural practices is to bring a multidimensional framework to the agriculture industry.

The participants talked about several topics related to the economy and agriculture industry of Greater Peoria.
