PASA Farming for the Future (and schooling for the future too!)

Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture has announced its 2010 Farming for the Future conference. I encourage anyone interested in sustainable and local/regional food to attend. It also provides great opportunities to meet like-minded people and learn some an array of skills from how to talk with and persuade officials to advanced cheese making.
This year's keynote speakers include Michael Reynolds, the developer of Earthship Biotecture, and journalist Lisa Hamilton.

But best of all, is "Sustainable Education: Integrating Sustainability into Your Curriculum: Matt Ray, Fernwood Public School." Cool! Listen to this report on WUVM about Ray and his students' use of a greenhouse and how it develops ecological literacy.
