Organic Grower's School - Flat Rock, NC

Okay backyard gardeners! The hands-down best school on gardening is coming up for the 15th year in Flat Rock on March 8th. I went last year and had a great experience. There are several paths you can follow through the day that will help small scale backyard farmers. And - big plus - you meet some great folks! My two big finds last year were fellow-Charlottean Lynn Caldwell (from the Charlotte Tailgate Market) and Imladris Farms' Walter Harrill. Both two terrific people. Walter's session on blackberries was extremely comprehensive and beneficial.

My next batch of sauerkraut is coming out in a couple of weeks. I haven't sorted out how I am going to do tastings, but you are welcome to volunteer. Post a comment on the blog posting about the sauerkraut so I have it in one place. I have an office in Fort Mill so next time I am there I could get it to you.

You could put a post out in the forum. Lynn from the Tailgate Market and I met there last year (go figure) and she said she might be going.

Wow. Good luck with that. I'd been meaning to ask how I could get my hands on some of your sauerkraut.

Do you know if anyone else from Slow Food Charlotte is going up to Flat Rock for the grower's school?

I'll be in Massachusetts and New Hampshire that weekend. I am actually touring the facilities at realpickles.com in Montague, Mass., to get some training on what it will take to get my sauerkraut into commercial production.

Thanks for pointing this out, Darryl. I've had a look and I've decided to go. Sounds like fun. Are you going again this year?
