Organic Gardening and Farming Conference

See also

Around these parts, February is known for love (Valentines Day), snow, groundhogs, and the annual NOFA winter conference. The Northeast Organic Farming Asociation's Vermont conference is being held this weekend, February 12-13th, at the University of Vermont. It's a great way to hobnob with the who's-who of Vermont organic gardening and farming, learn some new skills, eat some good food, and generally just have a mid winter break from the cold and snow.

The highlight of the conference is always the speakers. Keynote speakers Shannon Hayes, AKA The Radical Homemaker, and the nationnally-known environmentalist, Bill McKibben, kick off each day's speaker series. I will be giving a talk on Small Space Vegetables Gardening on Sunday at 10:45am. There will be talks on bee keeping to growing berries to raising a cow. All in all, there will be more than 70 talks and workshops to choose from, a children's conference, and a Saturday night social dinner. There is an intensive series of workshops on Monday, February 14th for commercial growers. Here's the details.
