Getting Excited

Leave a comment

I can’t believe it’s almost time for the next conference, and to think it’s the 10th year! It’s going to be at a grand old hotel in Charlottetown (Rodd Charlottetown) on March 4-6.

What a terrific line-up we have too. The speakers are top notch and such a variety of issues to be covered–from new entrants to advanced soil fertility. There’s also the issue of local fair trade that Marty Mesh (Agricultural Justice Project) is going to address.

I’m particularly excited that ACORN is going to be the Canadian premier of the film: What’s Organic About Organic, by Shelley Rogers. Shelley is even coming from NYC to be with us and provide a workshop on new media for farmers.

To recognize all the hard work that our members have contributed to ACORN to get us this far, we’re offering a special 2 for 1 to our farmer and gardener members! You must register by Feb. 4th to take advantage of this awesome deal.

So, less than 50 days until we see you in Charlottetown!


PS — Remember, we do have a carpooling blog if you’ve got a ride to share or need one.
