Ok, I’m stoked about this. The Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture (PASA) is hosting their 22nd annual Farming for the Future conference in February 2013. It’s a weekend long event being held in State College, PA. It just so happens that I was already planning to travel to the State College area that weekend so I am definitely going to hit up this conference. The list of workshops looks particularly interesting. Beekeeping for the Future: Practices for Today, Birds of a Feather: Backyard Poultry Basics, Sprouting Small Grains for Fodder, Farm Advocacy 101, and the Salmonella Chronicles all sound really cool to me. One of the keynote speakers is Vermont-based writer and speaker Ben Hewitt. I’ve never heard of him, but I checked out his website and I’m very curious! He talks a lot about localizing the food system and I love that, so I just might pick up a copy of his book “The Town That Food Saved” and read it before the conference.
Can’t wait!! Is anyone else going?
