if you live near maine....

There's a Greenhorns event coming atcha! If you are able to head north and be a part of it, it will be well worth it. The Greenhorns is a new, young farmer initiative and film project. Their events support small farmer and sustainable solutions for modern agriculture. They have a ton of resources for beginners and I was lucky to attend one of their sheepcentric-events this past spring. Not only did it make me even more excited about becoming a shepherd: it started a friendship with the people at Kinderhook farm. Now we're planning farm visits and dinners, and the chance to talk with and grill successful farmers will be wonderful.

If any of you can attend this event you will have a great experience. It is being held at the same place as the Common Ground Fair also put on by MOFGA. MOFGA is a class act so you won't be disappointed.

Not sure if you got my message on facebook a while back but there is a Greenhorn gathering in Vermont the following weekend. Are you going to Vermont or Maine? Let me know if you need the Vermont info.
