This year is the last that the Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture – or PASA – will hold its annual conference in State College.

PASA has hosted its winter conference at the Penn Stater Conference Center and Hotel for most of the event’s 27 years. Executive Director Hannah Smith-Brubaker said PASA was happy with the Penn Stater, but after a recent review the hotel more than doubled the cost to host the event.

This week, the Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel has played host to the National Autism Conference. The conference featured the artwork of children with autism at the Art of Expression exhibit on Wednesday.

Children were also given the opportunity to participate in a musical to be performed at the end of the conference.
