    It would be great if there were some way to open this lecture series up to a webinar or distance learning platform. I am studying at the University of Idaho and currently building a small farms and food systems program as we currently house on conventional ag. programs.

    Oh rats…I see it has already started 😦 Well I would be interested in any curriculum, notes, videos of the events that I could get my hands on.
