Swag from the Guelph Organic Conference
Yesterday my husband and I were able to attend the Guelph Organic Conference at the University of Guelph in Ontario. Although parts of the conference made us feel like little fish in a huge pond, lots of what we saw and heard re-ignited our passion for the farm.
As with most conferences we came home with a great stash of useful offerings. Granola bars, seed catalogues, books and information pamphlets. I was even gifted a jump drive from the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs because I asked a few questions about food contamination issues at their booth.
We attended a couple workshops and met some people with products designed to help farmers like us.
I'm probably going to spend the rest of the day flipping through seed catalogues and reading my new book "Record Keeping for Organic Growers". All in all, I'm expecting to have a lovely Feb 1st.
