Join us Tuesday, October 15 (6-8pm) at the Sedalia Center in northern Bedford County, for our October RootStock potluck. These monthly gatherings are a great way to network with other ecological farmers, new agrarians, homesteaders, organic gardeners, and local food lovers in the the greater Lynchburg region. We will be hearing from Brent Wills, president of the Virginia Association For Biological Farming (VABF).
Brent Wills farms with his wife Anna and kids at Bramble Hollow Farm in Montvale – with a focus on pastured poultry and pork – celebrating 15 years. Brent is also the president of the Virginia Association for Biological Farming, a statewide organization with a mission to educate about, advocate for, and promote organic and biological farming and gardening.
Brent will be discussing ways to get involved with VABF, and will highlight their upcoming conference – the 21st Annual Virginia Biological Farming Conference, to be held in Roanoke, Virginia in January 2020.
