The Texas Organic Farmers & Gardeners Association (TOFGA)–the one and only grassroots organization supporting Texas organic farmers and gardeners–is holding its annual conference in San Antonio for the first time, January 30-31.
Picture yourself in farm and foodie heaven: organic farmers from all over the state, workshops for home gardeners, a trade show, and a locally-sourced Friday night banquet featuring Tom Philpott, food writer for Mother Jones magazine.
Along with cutting-edge workshops for farmers and ranchers, this year’s conference will offer a full slate of workshops for home gardeners, such as Bee Basics, Backyard Ecosystems, Good Bugs/Bad Bugs, Backyard Citrus, Compost Tea, and Rainwater Harvesting.
Go to tofga.org to register, sponsor the conference, or buy dinner tickets for Friday night. And make sure to stop by the NCAT booth and say hello to Mike, Robert, and Justin.
