Our farming journey starts with the soil under our feet, and Iowa is blessed with some of the world’s best. We may be “well grounded,” but the steps we take too often let this solid foundation slip away. Come see how practical people build their farms, families and communities—and plant the deep roots/routes that will allow future generations to thrive.
The 2014 Practical Farmers Annual Conference will continue last year’s focus on building soils through cover crops and extended rotations. It will examine permaculture and grazing systems. It will showcase profitable vegetable systems, biodiversity on farms, nonfarmers who are building partnerships with farmers, and much more.
Early registration for the 2014 Annual Conference has ended. You may still register as a walk-in during the conference.
