What people are saying about this conference...

"The conference was definitely worth the time and money. I learned so much...not just about earthworms, but soil composition, minerals, testing, teas, diseases, correct processes to follow, etc. I'm looking forward to next year's conference already!" ~S.S., North Carolina


"Count me as an extremely satisfied conference attendee. I was truly impressed and hope to be one of your "frequent fliers." I was particularly impressed with the depth of the science presented."
