Fresh Food from Small Spaces
R. J. Ruppenthal
Format: Audio

Are you ready to save some money and eat some healthy, homegrown food? Even if you live in an apartment, condo, townhouse or small home, no space is too small or too dark to grow food: sprouts, mushrooms, ferments and cultures, vegetables, even berries and fruit trees! Perfect for anyone who wants to join the revolution in home food growing, R.J. Ruppenthal's new book Fresh Food from Small Spaces reveals how to harvest something delicious from any patio, balcony, rooftop, windowsill or cabinet.

The Sustainable Big Box
Will Winter, DVM
Format: Audio

We built a warehouse/buying club much better and much more fun than it really needed to be. After all, people today are still willing to pay so much, in so many ways, all to settle for so little. In this, the tail end of our dark and industrial food age, it's a time when a very small sliver of the population truly understands the precious value of farm-fresh food hauled in almost daily. Sustenance that will meet and exceed almost anyone's wildest food fantasies! But come anyway, secretly snicker as you cart home your own rich creamy raw milk, your stash of smoky bacon, your run-around-the-farm chicken, and almost-still-warm eggs. Never knew organic grass-fed ice cream could be a health food? Now you do. Decide later whether you will share this modern wonder of culinary delight with your friends!

Building Local Buying Clubs: Nuts and Bolts from the Beginner to the Best
John Moody
Format: Audio

In our time together, a hands-on approach will be used to help the beginning and seasoned buying club leader(s) better handle the various demands of organizing and distributing food and other products. From basic membership agreements, computer and ordering platform options, bookkeeping, legal and tax issues, and more. Identifying the five basic demands a buying club creates and learning how to balance and meet them efficiently and effectively will be our goal. John and Jessica Moody, chapter leaders for Louisville, KY, have been working with local farmers and artisans in the Kentuckiana region for almost four years, building buying clubs and other systems to allow consumers and farmers to connect efficiently and affordably, while educating both on the importance of nutrient-dense traditional foods and their preparation. They have two wonderful WAP kids who keep them very busy!

Yard Food Production - Trash to Treasure: Bioconversion of Organic “Wastes”
Harvey Ussery
Format: Audio & Slides

Wendell Berry observed that our culture has a habit of taking a beautiful natural solution and splitting it neatly into two hideous, insoluble problems. There is no better example than our misuse of organic “wastes” such as food residuals, manures, and yard debris like grass clippings and leaves. The result is not only the loss of potential resources, but widespread pollution of soil and water systems. This presentation will explore options for turning “trash into treasure” through bioconversion of “wastes” using decomposer organisms like earthworms and black soldier fly grubs, yielding not only priceless soil amendments but live, high-potency feeds for poultry, pigs, and farmed fish. The presentation will include as well a dynamic model for composting based on chicken power.

Food Co-ops
John Moody
Format: Audio & Slides

Want to see how farmers can thrive, families can team up, and food freedom can prosper? John has helped start dozens of buying clubs and serves as the lead administrator for one of the largest and most innovative co-ops in the country, building a model where 80 cents on the dollar of what members spends goes straight to the producers of the products and items.

How to Have a Totally Organic Garden
Celeste Longacre
Format: Audio & Slides

Celeste will show a PowerPoint presentation on how to grow a beautiful garden. With over 100 color pictures designed to provide insights and how-to information on soil preparation, planting, weeding, thinning and harvesting, this gives participants the tools that they need to plant and maintain a garden. Pictures are more specific than just words. What better way is there to take control of our eating than by growing some of our own food? We can give our plants additional soil amenities to provide extra nutrients for ourselves and our families. We can stay grounded by handling and caring for our plants. And the flavor! Nothing beats homegrown fruits and vegetables. Plus, the health benefits are astronomical.  So give your family the edge for health—grow your own. Because health, after all, is the greatest wealth.
