The salt curing, and veggie fermentation ones sound super exciting! And I'm curious to know everything I don't know about bone broth.
Amazing lineup of speakers. Looking forward to checking this out.

Hi Josh! Thanks for being here, I'm really excited about this summit especially the back to Eden garden method.

If I miss that session (or any session) will there be an option for me to have access to the replay or do I have to be in attendance for the entire live event?

Sounds really interesting! I would like to learn more about raised bed gardening. This "summer" is the worst for my raised beds (colder nights, hot hays, rain).
Thank you

I love the following sessions: Back to Eden Garden; the Garden Season Extension (although I live in USDA Zone 6a, November comes too soon and even in October the garden starts to fizzle out...) and Raised Bed Gardens!
