Paul Dysinger, Bountiful Blessings Farm (TN)


My first time attending a Southern SAWG conference was an experience filled with information, interesting ideas, and farming stories. Imagine being surrounded by hundreds of people - all passionate about sustainable agriculture. But perhaps the best part is the opportunity to learn from other people's hard earned experience. I remember sitting and listening to a couple share about their farming experience and how they were making things work for their farm. It was an opportunity to catch a glimpse into the lives of other people who are tangibly changing our world at the "grass roots level". And so, while here is a huge opportunity to capture a lot of knowledge that is being shared - more importantly I'd say "come for the people". The connections and support you can find at SSAWG are definitely worth it!
