TRACKS are categories or suites of classes of the same type. (example: the All About Poultry track will feature classes about poultry.) Tracks are given letter codes A-O.
SESSIONS are classes within tracks. (example: backyard chickens would be a session within the All About Poultry track). Sessions, or classes, are given number codes 1-4.
TIMES: There are four time slots throughout each conference day.
- All of the sessions with code #1 happen from 9:00 AM – 10:30 AM
- Session #2 is 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM
- Session #3 is 2:00 PM – 3:30 PM
- Session #4 is 4:00 PM – 5:30 PM
Therefore, all the sessions with number code 1 are happening at the same time, and so on and so forth with sessions labeled 2-4. Ultimately, you can pick up to four classes to attend in one day. You do not have to attend all your classes in a single track. You are free to switch around from track to track throughout the day.
Most classes are REPEATED on day two of the event, to give you a better chance of getting to all the awesome classes you want to see.
What do classes cost?

Classes in TRACK N: COOKING TRACK and all Half-Day Workshops require additional sign up and entry fees. Cooking classes have a flat $5 fee per class, and Half-Day Workshops have a flat $10 per workshop. These fees will be collected at time of registration.
