This was a good program highlighting almost all aspects of growing organically in Ventura County, CA. I put together a photo essay of this program on Blogger at http://tinyurl.com/oxtzzub

Very interesting program that will enlighten you and provide new information about common foods you use. However, be prepared to endure standing for periods of time while listening to speakers.

This was a wonderful program; I'd almost take it again! Great field trips full of information.
