pigsWe had a great trip to North Carolina last week for the 25th annual Organic Growers School conference.  Wonderful people, wonderful talks, wonderful food, it was three days of terrific interaction with famers from all over Appalachia, with some from even farther afield.  The Yus definitely rang the bell for most distance travelled, coming to us all the way from Japan!  We hope to be able to return the visit one day and learn from some of the world’s most experience permaculturists.
