Join Us at the Organic Growers School This Weekend


 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.
