March 3rd – Organic and Beyond
The Tennessee Organic Growers Association (TOGA) is holding its 3rd annual conference on Saturday, March 3rd, on the campus of Tennessee State University.
Eliot Coleman, an expert organic grower, author, and advocate for organic and sustainable farming practices, is the day’s featured speaker. In addition to Mr. Coleman’s keynote address, a complete lineup of workshops and presentations round out the event.
TOGA’s mission is to provide research and support for organic farmers and gardeners and to nurture relationships among local producers and consumers. The goal is to educate the public regarding the connection between healthy food, organic farming, and the economic, social, and ecological benefits of supporting local growers.
