BORN conference and 1000 new gardens

Mike and I had an incredible time at the BORN/Bioneers Conference Sunday in Bozeman. We attended the 1000 New Gardens Bozeman Seedluck Friday and were so impressed by the exuberant energy of the young people who are involved and moving forward there. Bozeman continues to inspire us, as did the Bioneers conference in 2009! Great plenary speakers - and this year we were speakers also - about activism in Great Falls and composting. Many folks are interesed in what we are doing, which was even more inspiring for us. Good time spreading the good news about cold composting.
We met with the Co-op, the Food Bank, and representatives from MSU on Monday and are even more excited about what might get started when the organizations get together and start to experiement on their own. We're certainly all of the same mind, and looking for ways to grow food, get our hands and our kids in the dirt, and have a sustainable food source right where we live. Thanks, Bozeman, for hosting us, and for all of your interest in what we have to offer.
