last weekend (not the one that just passed, we're going a little further back here), i attended the NOFA (northeast organic farming association) conference in Amherst, Ma.

from thursday to sunday over 1700 people gathered to discuss, teach, learn, and celebrate food and farming. people from all walks and professions. from all scales of growing: backyard suburban gardens, roof top urban gardens, 400 acre farms. it was a blast.

i made new friends, and met up with some old ones.
i lived in a tent for three days, and showered in a men's bathroom.
i watched a contra dance, and danced to zydeco.
i learned to felt, to raise bees, to grow wheat, and to eat like a rainbow.

here are some shots from felting and camping, seems as though i was just too too busy filling my head with exciting things to fill my camera...
