One of the greatest things about agriculture is that there’s always more to learn. Whether you’re growing organic vegetables, raising heritage livestock, or tending cut-flower gardens they’ll be something new year after year. If you want to get a jump start on your 2019 education you should attend the Virginia Biological Farming Conference. It’s Virginia’s premier organic and sustainable agricultural conference!
