The Mid Del Farmers Market and Buy Fresh Buy Local sponsored an excellent Growing for Market seminar at the Midwest City Library last Tuesday night. We had a really fun time, met some awesome new people doing the same sorts of things that we are and learned a ton of stuff.
Some of the presenters were:
Julia Laughlin - Head of the Horticultural Dept at OSU-OKC
Doug Walton - Kerr Center for Sustainable Agriculture
Robert Stelle - local certified organic grower, Sunrise Acres
Larry Hocking - local chemical-free grower, Berry Creek Farm
We really enjoyed Julia's presentation and it made us want to take some of her classes. I'd heard Doug Walton speak before at an event I attended at the State Capitol on Food Deserts, and he did not disappoint. The event was standing room only full and I'm very glad that we went.
On a related note:
The Mid Del Farmers market opens May 1st!
