An Organic Experience

Whether they measure their land in acres or yards, enterprising New Mexicans are taking organic food production into their own hands. And for those folks, the New Mexico Organic Farming Conference is one of the most important tools around. The two-day conference, held at the Marriot Albuquerque Pyramid North (5151 San Francisco NE) from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. today and tomorrow, is a crash course in everything there is know about organic farming, from applying for organic certification to going to market. Cost is $65 per day or $100 for both, with a $5 discount for organic producers and processors. Register online at farmtotablenm.org. Questions? Call Joanie at 841-9067.
