17th Annual Organic Growers School will be held this weekend, March 6 & 7, 2010 at University of North Carolina Asheville. For about the past ten years it was held at Blue Ridge Community College, but we've moved this year to a bigger venue. We are excited about that, but a little nervous. It will also be our second year as a two day event.
There will be over 60 classes on farming, gardening, cooking, policy making, organic certification, and sustainable living. There will be a seed swap and a great tradeshow. New this year will be three salons on Saturday evening in downtown Asheville on a variety of topics.
I organized the track on hot new crops. That is Track H and will include sessions on both days on how to grow truffles, hops, mountain muscadine grapes, and mushrooms. Should be interesting.
