Follow the Farmer Seminar at Joyful Noise Farm

Are you concerned about GMO foods? Are you wondering how small sustainable farms are going to compete with the big, industrial farms?

I am. Like many of you, I'm a big fan of high quality food. I also believe in America as a place where an individual can make his or her own living without relying on a big corporation for a job. Small, family farms cover both of these topics and I want to see them survive.

That's why I'm so excited to attend the Follow the Farmer seminar at A Joyful Noise Farm in Black Forest! We'll learn how it's done from the experts (and personally I'm hoping to come away with knowledge that will transform my little garden too!).

** Note:  You must register at to attend this seminar.

Since they know we're interested in local food and farms, Craig and Kellie McHugh wrote to me to personally invite the group to join this year's seminar and learn about four-season farming. They have even offered us a special discount. Put in the code HCH for 10% off the seminar price when you register on their website.

Craig writes ... "A Joyful Noise Farm is hosting its annual farm Seminar at their farm in Black Forest on Saturday August 17th. It's called Follow the Farmer Seminar and this year they are bringing Clara Coleman as their lead farmer. Clara is the daughter of author and farmer Elliot Coleman and she specializes in growing four season. She is going to spend the entire day leading hands-on classes on all aspects of four season growing.

Along with Clara, they have invited Dr. Perry Cabot from CU extension service, who is a water expert. He will be leading tours of the farm and discussing rainwater management and collection.

As a special incentive we have created a promo code just for your followers that will give them a 10% discount off admission. The code is HCH. They can enter the code when they register at our website at"

Don't put off registering! The seminar is limited to 100 people and they only have a few spots left!

    I can't believe how much I learned!! It's a farming seminar, but I'll be able to use a lot of the information for my home garden.

      My understanding is it's for anyone who is interested in farming and doesn't require any prior knowledge. I would recommend contacting Craig & Kellie with questions [masked]), but I can tell you that I'm going and everything I know about farming fits on my website. :-)
