WARREN, R.I. — The Northeast Organic Farming Association of Rhode Island (NOFA/RI) is pleased to announce “A Growers Seminar With Roger Swain & Lee Reich” on Sunday, December 3, 2017 from 10 am to 4:00 pm at Hope & Main, 691 Main Street, Warren, Rhode Island.
Registration is required at http://nofari.org/events/our-
This special event features two nationally known experts sharing experience, techniques and humor in backyard and small farm growing.
Roger Swain, is known to millions from his years of hosting the popular PBS show “The Victory Garden,” and is easily recognized by his trademark red suspenders. Always informative and entertaining, Roger will impart practical advice for backyard and small farms in the larger context of how gardening sustains us, personally and collectively.
Lee Reich, PhD, is an avid farmdener (more than a gardener, less than a farmer), and spent years researching with the USDA and Cornell University. Lee will discuss growing methods and marketing potential for uncommon fruit varieties, rich in flavor and good for organic and pesticide-free growing, as well as discuss best practices for no-till techniques.
Seminar brought to you by NOFA/RI and RI DEM Division of Agriculture via a USDA grant.
