The Texas Organic Farmers & Gardeners Association
is planning an interesting workshop Saturday, September 13, 2008 in Kilgore. This is one of the many farm and gardening organizations we are members of that are striving to improve the way we farm or garden. If you go to the State Fair this fall in Dallas, they have a nice booth in the Food & fiber building.
