The stories about planting and growing were far overshadowed by the presentations given from the other aspects of our industry. I heard more stories about growing and it's many facets from other attendees, than from presenters.
there were many topis that were presented, and were very interesting; full of relavent info. If you look at the program on the first posting to this thread, you can see the other topics.
As Tanner said, there were many statistics given out. The two surveys were really interesting as these indicated the prevailing attitude of everyone in the room, from attendees to presenters.
I think that there may be some video from the primary sponsor, NCNPA, at some point in the future. I just checked their website, and nothing there yet. However, the entire event was recorded [including some vids I think] by a pro soundman located near Etowah, NC.
IN an earlier post within this thread, I said: \" I heard more stories about growing and it's many facets from other attendees, than from presenters.\" Perhaps that was misleading. I meant that personal stories were more prelevant amongst the growers in attendance, while the presenters were showing obstacles' overcome, and some specific \"how-to\" stuff. Robert Eidus of Eagle Feather Organic Farm had a very good talk about converting shabby, rocky soil to growable dirt using compost and eggshell surry to enhance the Ca, as well as creating soil that would actually grow stuff. He had quite a display there with his organically raised herbs from his farm.
