What to bring: You will be walking outdoors between classroom buildings to get to your sessions, so have a winter coat and rain gear, if weather requires it. Please minimize waste by bringing your own mug for drinks and utensils for lunch.

Refund Policy: Registration for the OGS Spring Conference is non-refundable. The conference will be held rain, snow or shine. The only exemption is if you register for a half-day workshop or the Children’s program, are notified that it is full, and choose not to attend as a result. If you are unable to attend, we will be happy to send you documentation so that your registration fee can be recorded as a tax-deductible contribution to the ongoing work of the Organic Growers School, Inc.

Your Registration Details: Please see your original sales receipt for the specific details of your weekend registration or wait to receive your nametag with the details printed on it. Attached is the most up-to-date class schedule for the weekend.
