One of the great things about a northeastern winter is the strong sense of community the harsh weather can inspire. A great way to feel that collective joy is to check out your local organic farming organization, and visit their winter conference!
You’ll get to hang out with small-farmers — a fun and down-to-earth crowd, sample delicious local foods, attend workshops by renowned experts, learn a thing or two to improve your farm, garden, or homestead, and browse a selection of Chelsea Green favorites at the bookstore table!
