Last chance to register for the MOFFA Organic Intensives, for this Saturday in East Lansing. Three great topics to choose from for an all day, in-depth educational program. Practitioners share their knowledge and experiences. Great handouts to follow along and take home. Good hearty lunch with farmer-farmer networking!
