So my supervisor (CEO of the ministry) encourages me to learn and take advantage of educational resources (especially if they are free). So far I've taken a class about greenhouse IPM, Weed IPM (still formulating how I am approaching 'weeds') and am going to the Boston Flower Show next month (I grow all our landscape annuals from seed). I am going to convince him to let me join a local garden club.
He's also been encouraging me to visit working farms to glean knowledge and see it in action first hand. There is a farm in Indiana and a farm in PA that are friends of the ministry but I am wondering if people can recommend something closer to home in the New England area that is open to visitors? Particularly ones that take a more organic approach versus conventional farming. I am trying to move us in that direction.
