I can’t fully express my appreciation for the passion conveyed in the [Spring] Gardening series. Especially regarding the creation of a healthy, vibrant earth through gardening and by redefining our relationship with nature/soil. Thank you, thank you.
I love the OGS Spring Conference. Thank you all for your hard work to make it happen. I look forward to it every year and always come away inspired and ready to keep working!
What I love most about CRAFT is the networking with other farmers and visiting working farms. The sharing of information between farmers is like in no other industry. In farming, it seems, competitiveness turns into collaboration and cooperation.
