The summer 2012 NOFA conference was so full of information that you will see multiple blog posts sharing material and links from the speakers and exhibitors. The wonderful young man, Ben Grossup, organized over 200 workshops on organic farming, gardening, land care, draft animals, homesteading, sustainability, nutrition, food politics, activism, and much more to children to adults. Their site will have audio recordings of many talks (not mine) and the power points from many others (including mine). Because the health of our dogs, cats, gerbils, fish, children and all family members depends on the health of our food, water and air, these talks can help each of us improve life around us. There were talks on urban gardening and creating your own farm, so each of you will find juicy, nurturing, helpful information at the site. Bioshelters are passive solar greenhouses that produce year-round food, even fish (great protein for your animals). Of course chickens, ducks, rabbits, other poultry would thrive there as well. Urban gardens can feed your family – see this video and many other links on the page.
