What people are saying about this conference…
“The conference was definitely worth the time and money. I learned so much…not just about earthworms, but soil composition, minerals, testing, teas, diseases, correct processes to follow, etc. I’m looking forward to next year’s conference already! ~S.S., North Carolina
