I've heard the NOFA 5-day course in organic land care is amazing - and they're holding it in NY next month! It's Feb 17, 18, 19, 20 and 23 at Birch Hill in Schodack, about 15 minutes from Albany. It covers everything about organic land care, from soil health and compost tea to planting, mulching and running a business. For info: www.organiclandcare.net or call Kathy Litchfield, 413-773-3830 or firstname.lastname@example.org I'm going! If anyone else is going or has been to the course let me know!
