Want to learn how to start your own CSA, become a tree whisperer, or breed perennial crops? The Northeast Organic Farming Association summer conference starts today, and the schedule is packed with over 225 workshops that will teach you everything you wanted to know about organic agriculture, sustainability, food activism, or just how to be a better backyard gardener.
This year, the Northeast Animal-Power Field Day will be holding their workshops at the conference, so attendees can learn also about using draft animals in the fields.
August 12-14, Amherst.
