This spring, join Organic Growers School and MOTHER EARTH NEWS for the Spring Conference and Market, a collaborative effort held at Mars Hill University, Mars Hill, N.C., March 18-20, 2022. This synergistic partnership creates a hybrid intersection of mission and values leveraging regional farm and gardening connections with powerful branding and an expanded market to cultivate food equity and diversity initiatives, self-sufficiency, health and well-being, and environmental sustainability in local communities. The MOTHER EARTH NEWS exhibit hall will feature presentations with hands-on workshops, as well as a vast Marketplace abounding with innovative resources and products for farmers and home-growers of all scales. With the joint mission of the Organic Growers School and MOTHER EARTH NEWS to empower individuals with knowledge and resources to cultivate the land responsibly and productively, this event is sure to be a truly unique experience for all participants.
As of now, we are planning to come back together in person, and we are exploring whether we might be able to make the conference accessible to those who may not feel comfortable attending in person. This year’s conference will include pre-conference workshops, 15 tracks, eight half-day workshops, and an ‘exhibit hall stage’ featuring shorter talks. Registration will open on December 15th. Updates will be posted on this page, so check back for more soon!
