The Harvest Conference is an educational event that offers affordable classes on organic growing and sustainable living. This year, we’re changing things up—instead of one day of many short classes, we’re offering a small selection of 2-day workshops taught by outstanding guest speakers. You may register for the first day (Friday only) of any workshop—or—both days (Friday and Saturday) for a more in-depth experience.
The North Carolina Women’s Summit: Women Moving Mountains is November 10, 2018 at The Collider in Downtown Asheville. This is the first time in four years we’ve gone west and we’re very excited about the journey.
More details will be announced this spring, but the Summit will be in late October/early November and we hope you’ll make plans to join us.
