A weekend of workshops for beginning gardeners to advanced commercial growers, the 17th Annual Organic Growers School takes place Saturday and Sunday, March-7, 2010, at UNC Asheville. The event, which is open to the public, provides practical, region-appropriate organic growing and permaculture workshops, homesteading and rural living classes such cooking and stonescaping, as well as a seed exchange, silent auction, and trade show. This year’s school offers 75 sessions each day with topics ranging from beginning gardening to commercial farming to urban homesteading. The schedule of workshops is designed with all levels of growers in mind: the professional farmer, the beginning commercial grower, and the home gardener.
