All day Intensive Seminar with Paul & Elizabeth Kaiser

Paul & Elizabeth Kaiser will be offering an all-day seminar to educate you on their successful no-till farming methods. Sessions will run concurrently with other workshops; attendees must participate in all 3 sessions.  During the seminar, Paul and Elizabeth will co-present the ecologically diverse farming techniques that have led to years of successful food production and a sustainable livelihood.  They will guide an in-depth look at establishing and maintaining beds and fields, how to transition from one crop to the next in a no-till system, and take you from the basics and beyond of managing an intensive, no-till system.

Teen/Children’s Conference

Teens and children, ages 3-12, may participate in the teen and children's conference for a variety of workshops.  This program will run during the keynote and workshops. If weather permits, activities may be held outside so please dress accordingly. Snacks are provided, however, if your teen/child has dietary restrictions please provide your own snacks.
