One of the largest organic conferences in the U.S. is the Ecofarm Conference at Pacific Grove, California. This year the conference participant total was estimated at over 2000. HMI presented on how to do an Enterprise Analsysis and we also had a booth at the tradeshow there to provide outreach on our programs, including the California Whole Farm/Ranch Land Management course starting February 20th at Willits (registration closes on February 9th) and our Holistic Management Gathering at Paicines in the fall.
The workshop had at least 50 attendees and participants enjoyed an opportunity to work on the worksheets as well as hear the presentation. The evaluations collected by the event organizers showed the satisfaction rating at 92% with 88% of participants having gained more knowledge about the topic. The workshop was translated to Spanish simultaneously for Spanish speaking participants from as far away as Cuba. Thanks to the great conference organizers at Ecofarm and for all of the folks who stopped by our booth to visit.
