We noticed you haven't yet registered for the Practical Tools and Solutions for Sustaining Family Farms Conference. If you just registered via web or mail, we thank you. If not, we sure hope you won't miss out on this unmatched opportunity to learn from some of the most experienced organic and sustainable farmers and community food advocates in the region. We've got a whole new program this year with even more educational sessions than last year. Take a look at the full pre-conference and conference program here.

There is still time to pre-register before the January 11, 2013 deadline. After that, we'll gladly register you at the convention center, so make your plans to come join us! By the way, the Peabody is full on Friday and Saturday nights, but we have rooms at the discounted rate at the Doubletree just one block away. Come gather information to make your upcoming season more fruitful.

I look forward to seeing you there,

Jean Mills
Southern SAWG Conference Coordinator

The Peabody is sold out of lodging rooms on the nights of January 24 & 25, 2013. BUT, there are still plenty of rooms at our overflow hotel, the Doubletree. The Doubletree Hotel is just one block away.
