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.
Presented by Self-Help Credit Union
Features: Workshops on “Making a Way out of No Way,” and on “Marketing Your Business,” Panels on “Resources for Youth” and “Building Wealth”/ Youth Entrepreneurs Giving Pitches for their Businesses / Youth Business Expo / Performances by youth, including dancing, marching, singing, spoken word/ hands-on activities, etc.
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.
Tuesdays & Thursdays, 12 – 1pm | The Collider
We invite the Asheville business, entrepreneurial, and science community at large to join us and participate in trainings delivered by world-class business, start-up, and climate science experts on topics ranging from how to pitch investors to how climate change is a factor in the increased prevalence of mosquito and tick-borne diseases.
