If you are interested, I suggest you visit the North American Truffle Growers Association website at http://trufflegrowers.com/ and consider joining and attending their summer meeting.
On February 25-27, the second annual National Truffle Fest will be held in Asheville. This is a classy affair appropriate for foodies and growers. I attended last year and learned SO MUCH about truffle production and had one of the finest dinners in my entire life. Learn more about it at http://northamericantrufflefest.com/.
There will be another opportunity for you to learn about truffle growing this spring. Gavan Garland, of Garland Truffles, will be speaking on both Saturday and Sunday, March 6 and 7, 2010 at the Organic Growers School, at the UNC-Asheville. Visit the OGS website for more information http://organicgrowersschool.org/.
