Farm Science Review, 2009

The 47th annual Farm Science Review begins today at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center in London, OH. The three day ag conference brings together the latest in farm and agriculture technology and fills all three days with seminars and lectures from guest speakers and extension educators.

While the vast majority of the conference deals with conventional farming practices, there is a schedule of events specifically tailored towards small and sustainable farming, and many of the seminars deal with gardening techniques and practices. Two of our VISTAs, Eric and Jenn, drove up to London today for the conference, and they will be attending different seminars and lectures from that list above. Dessie and I (John) will be attending the conference tomorrow, and hope to bring back some new insights or learned information from the day.

I'll be tweeting and uploading pictures while there tomorrow, so make sure to follow us along for the day at twitter.com/growfoodandhope. Look for hashtag #fsr09 for tweets from the conference.
