Notes & Reminders

 
Saturday, February 21, 2009
Windsor High School, Windsor, CT
8:30am to 4:45pm

Early bird registration ends February 7th.  Register now and save $5.00!

Join the conference to hear from two urban agriculture pioneers, Ian Marvey and Dan Ross, to learn more about what is going on in our state and how you can become involved!

The conference will also feature a track of workshops focusing on strategies to close Connecticut's food gap with urban agriculture, small farms and gardens.  There will be a panel discussion on urban food systems, a workshop on exciting urban gardening initiatives, and a panel of young farmers who hope to dispel some myths about farming in Connecticut and reach a growing audience of young first-time farmers.

Other sessions during this conference will address "Edibles in the Landscape", "Is A Commercial Kitchen For You?", "Soil Compaction", and "City Chickens" to name a few.  For those interested in raising and preparing their own food there are workshops on bread making by Bantam Bread and cooking with winter vegetables by Jonathan Rapp.  For those more interested in sustainable living there are workshops on global warming solutions and making soaps and body butters with local ingredients.

Come out and join us!
