Organic Farming Conference and Where's Spring?

Posted 3/4/2015 5:54pm by David Paulk.

We just returned from a weekend escape to La Crosse, Wisconsin for the Midwest Organic & Sustainable Education Service (MOSES  http://mosesorganic.org/#) 26th annual farming conference - the largest organic farming conference in the country with over 3,500 attendees!

We learned a lot, meet a lot of new friends and got a nice energy boost from fellow farmers and presenters to hit the soil running this spring.

Who knew our kinfolk from the midwest had such passion, commitment and knowledge regarding organic farming? Check out the MOSES website and FB to learn more. These folks are truly inspirational!

Spring is just around the corner, so our plants in the greenhouse tell us. Looking ahead at the weather forecast next week looks promising to get some leeks, kale and maybe onions planted.  As well as do some winter clean-up when the fields dry out a bit.  In the meantime, we're gearing up to be at the BAE Farmer's Market in early April.  With some luck, we'll have lettuce, kale, turnips, radishes, rainbow chard, scallions and mesclun mix.  Stay warm and eat healthy.
