I would like to avoid all the mistakes and wasted time and with your help be given a good start to begin converting my business gradually to organics. I have a very good established business and would like to begin with an organic alternative program to offer. Since I'm green in this,it would be real nice to catch a conference,a good book,even visit someone's operation to help me begin.It seems by reading the threads (I read as much as I could at one sitting before getting dizzy) that it is still a learning process for most. My biggest question is what approach does one take in a warm climate like memphis which is different from the Northeast. If someone could help me with some simple wisdom I will be most grateful.
