This annual fall workshop is proof of the strong interest in organic farming and gardening across the state.
"This conference means Oklahomans don't have to travel out of the state to receive solid and valid information for their farm or garden," said Lynn Brandenberger, OSU Cooperative Extension horticulture food crops specialist.
OSU Cooperative Extension and OSU-OKC are partnering with the U.S. Department of Agriculture - Natural Resources Conservation Service and several other organizations to help provide a slate of research-based information during the conference.
Topics on tap for the two-day workshop include tips for progressing from gardener to farmer, cover cropping for organic production, food safety, low-input crops, organic farming experiences and permaculture.
