Pure Catskills
So much to do. So little time.
There may not be much sprouting from the ground right now, but ideas, passion and inspiration can rise up now with a just little nurturing. Over the next three months, feed your soul with new information, renewed friendships, and re-inspired projects by attending one of the regional conferences or workshops that our Communications Director, Tara Collins, rounded up in a recent blog post. Each one offers knowledge in its own way, be it from technical experts, farmer experience, research trials, or tested innovative approaches. Many of these opportunities offer scholarships, ride and room shares, and volunteering exchanges, so you can get what you need at an affordable price.  

We look forward to seeing you at these upcoming conferences, and invite you to Save the Date for the 2013 Farm to Market Connection being held again in Liberty in late March (see more details below).
