MOSES Organic Farming Conference, as reported by Amelia

1 Mar

Here’s my list of the 10 most memorable things I encountered at the MOSES Organic Farming Conference in La Crosse over the weekend:

  1. Poly-Tex, a greenhouse manufacturer out of Castle Rock, MN (which is only a few miles from ARTech), who will give us a 10% educational discount if we purchase a greenhouse from them
  2. Dreadlocks, and the stocking caps that accompanied them
  3. The permaculture/agroforestry seminar I attended Friday afternoon
  4. Seed catalogs!
  5. The Farm-to-School program, which I knew hardly anything about before this trip
  6. Free root beer and a circus put on by the kids in childcare at the conference Friday night
  7. The Weston A. Price Foundation, with whom I had a very engaging conversation about raw milk
  8. The food, which was great, especially the chocolate milk
  9. The hoophouse management classes
  10. The free coffee mug I got, with the conference logo on it, sitting on my desk right now
