Do you want to know more about local food production and entrepreneurship? Renewable energy from perennial crops? Ecological Services? How about learning more about what can be done to reduce nutrient loss from our agricultural fields? If you answered yes to any of those questions, mark your calendar for Rural Advantage's 2011 Third Crop Producer Meetings.
