I am looking forward to the 2009 Carolina Farm Stewardship Association 24th Annual Conference .
Possibly most exciting to me is having the opportunity to touch bases with and learn from respected organic educators who will be at the Conference. The good luck that the Conference will be held just a hop-skip-and-jump from Asheville is a real bonus. The event provides educational workshops for beginning gardeners, advanced organic farmers and folks interested in sustainable living.
This year, the gathering will be at the Blue Ridge Assembly, a retreat center on 1200 acres of Appalachian mountains and home to hiking trails, mountain streams, historic buildings, and also offers a crafts center for the kids.
Often conferences offer food that makes me want to bring my own. But the Carolina Farm Stewardship Conference features local and organic farm food, including breakfast both days. Hope to see you there.
