If I could find a babysitter, I would try to attend this meeting just for the fun of it. However, I do caution the organic gardener, as UT is becoming more organic friendly, but still promotes non-organic methods of farming and gardening such as GMO crops and pesticide usage. However, I still feel you should be able to learn something from this meeting! If you go, please let me know how it turns out!
