[Ok-sus] Missouri Organic Association 2014 Advanced Market Growers Workshop

This is shaping up to be a very good conference and it is not too far to travel.  I attended last year and found it enormously helpful to me.  The presentations cover organic & sustainable production, as you’d expect, but the sustainable living track is also addressing permaculture, hugelculture, heirloom seeds, straw-bale culture, and biochar.  And don’t be fooled by the subtitle.  There is a track for beginners as well.
