    I enjoyed the emphasis on insect pests because it seems to be one thing that most people like to ignore until it is too late. Dr. Kovach did a wonderful job of laying out the different methods of fighting off the really bad nuisance bugs. I think I counted about 100 attendees. WOW!
    Kudos to Trish Clark of Local Matters.org!

    A lot of great information. Wish I could have met everyone in the group, but how cool was it that the room was full of people interested in urban gardening. :)

    It was a great event, I was not expecting it to be so detailed. I regret not taking a note pad. I arrived early and no one signed me in so I signed in on the way out.

    In response to Mayda Sanchez-Shingler
    In India grass is brought to the cows as opposed to pasture grazing. What about mowing neighbors lawns for the grass clippings. This will only be safe when there are no lawn chemicals.

      Interesting. You could cater only to chem free yards.

    FarmTek have systems of growing grass 'sprouts' hydroponically. While not 'organic' and because hydroponic fluids must be properly disposed when saturated, it may not be a good way to feed your cow.

    Hi Monika
    I was the 3rd kid in a family of 4-boys raised on a 3-acre "farmette" on the banks of the Detroit River back in 1939. We had 2-Jersey cows, 2 pigs, anywhere from 20 to 100 chickens and had 2-acres of strawberries and peaches. Our 'garden' kept us busy all summer selling produce at the farmers market. The hay and grain for a cow & chickens probably takes another 7 to 10 acres. Hay this year is $280 to $300/ton & a cow will eat about 50-75#/day. Oats make good feed to get cream for butter & cream puffs. Chicken feed is about $15 for 40# of organic feed. I have a neat system of caging in a roll-about enclosure for 50 chickens that moves around the pasture. they eat a lot of bugs and grass.
