Organic Growers School 30th Annual Spring Conference
Dec 1 all-day
online w/ Organic Growers School

2023 Save the Date Spring
                                      Conference Flyer-1 (2)

Registration will open on December 1, 2022

The Organic Growers School is excited to announce the 30th Anniversary of our Spring Conference, which will take place at Mars Hill University on February 24-26, 2023. This year’s conference will continue our non-profit’s mission to support, inspire and educate people to farm, garden, and live organically by providing affordable, practical, and hands-on education.

This three-day event consists of 60 90minute workshops organized into 15 themed tracks, such as Mushrooms, Herbs, Gardening, Farming, and Sustainable Living. The first day is dedicated to day-long workshops at off-campus sites around Western North Carolina.

OGS is excited to announce a sliding-scale ticket price structure for the event! The event has been the most affordable in the region, but investing in continuing education can still be out of reach for farmers and aspiring growers. OGS will also offer a small pool of scholarships if our sliding scale price is not affordable.

Whether you are an enthusiastic local eater, food system advocate, new to growing, or have a few farming years under your belt, we hope you’ll join us to kick off the new season with the growing community!
