in New London, NH.

Andy and Daniel will head to the Urban Farming Conference in Boston, MA, on March 17, where Andy will be presenting two sessions: one on farm business planning and the other on tools and equipment for the urban farm.

Then, the first week of April the team will head to St. Louis, MO, for the ATTRA/SARE Conference. This joint conference between the Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Program (SARE) and NCAT's ATTRA Program is in celebration of both organizations' 30th anniversaries in sustainable agriculture. ATTRA Specialists will be hosting a pre-conference session for past participants of NCAT's Armed to Farm Program for military veterans. Then they will stick around and participate in the full conference.
