I HIGHLY recommend this! The times are actually 9am on saturday Aug 11 thru mid-day on sunday, Aug 12. There is a free workshop on Organic No-Till for Vegetable Production on sunday from 9-12. The rest of the weekend has a charge. I believe camping is included. Good folks, good work, good presenters. I'll be there doing a threshing workshop but mostly super excited to learn from Larry Korn and the others as well.
