Third annual conference a success!

Thanks to an amazing line-up of speakers and a group of enthusiastic attendees, our third annual conference went off without a hitch! Here are some of the comments from the evaluations ...
This conference rocked!
Bring questions -- the friendly speakers are happy to answer them.
Lots of great information on sustainable living
Great to learn about different aspects of homesteading
Lots of good info and networking opportunities
Great way to learn from people with life experience
Even if you don't live on a farm, there is something to learn.
When asked what their favorite session was, most people listed more than one, and some attendees even said, "all of them!" We also received lots of compliments about the lunch, which was catered by Chipotle this year.

Victoria Miller, author of Pure Poultry, talks about poultry

We want to give a big thanks to Premier1 Supplies for their generous sponsorship, which allowed us to bring in Victoria Miller, author of Pure Poultry, who spoke about living off-grid, canning, and of course, poultry.

Thanks to Modern Farmer magazine for providing all attendees with a free copy of their magazine.

Plans for the 2015 conference are already underway. If you have any thoughts or suggestions, be sure to let us know by commenting below.
