Anyone going to.the horse progress days in dalton, oh july 4 & 5?April 19, 2014 at 1:16 pm #83107Stephen LeslieParticipant
Planning on it. I was invited by the steering committee to co-present something on organic market gardening with horses—co-presenting with Jelmer Albada. I was totally daunted by the notion of having anything to say to an audience of (mostly) plain farmers about farming with horses—but the organic approach is one angle where Jelmer and I may be able to present something useful to produce farmers who are considering a transition from conventional production methods.April 19, 2014 at 5:07 pm #83109Donn HewesKeymaster
I am planning to go and set up a DAP Net table. Hopefully I will see you there. DonnApril 19, 2014 at 5:11 pm #83110dominiquer60Moderator
I hope to go when it returns to PA. Stephen, you will do well. There are so many plain folk that are hungry for good information about natural and organic approaches. I see many products that they use/sell trying to be less chemical dependent, and some of it not backed by scientific knowledge. Let them know what works for you and remember that just because they are Plain Folk, that does not automatically make them good horse folk or gardeners, many have a lot to learn from a well spoken “Englishman” like yourself.
