The Weblog

This page contains news, event information, and other items added by myself, the intrepid farmer-in-process at Old 99. I send out a message every week, but most are set with a delete date about two weeks later. I archive some of the posts if they have content other than weekly availability of produce and meat.

You can send me questions too, which if they are of a general nature, I can post to this Old99 blog.

Local Food Summit Aug 6 to 16

I posted a note on this last week, but here I"m saying I’m really impressed with the use of technology to get content to virtual attenders all over the world.

The Local Food Summit will be a truly revolutionary event for both yourself and the local food movement at large. It may be your first time attending a virtual summit, and that is great. You will soon see why thousands of people are tuning in to these events, saving on transportation and lodging, and experiencing invaluable insights.

The Local Food Summit is not just a line up of speakers, it is designed to take you through a JOURNEY OF DISCOVERY. Each day has a purpose, along with its speakers. Each day several interviews and/or presentations will go live for your watching for the entire day (and the next), and will be available for you to tune.

As a FREE Member you will have FREE LIMITED TIME access for the duration of the summit. We’ll let you know what speakers are appearing each day so that you don’t miss out! We’ll also be hosting a daily short introduction to our speakers, what they’ll be delving into, and how to get the best from each segment. Be sure to tune into those!

STill 4 days left, you get an email every day like this for day 6:

The first nationwide local food gathering, August 6 – 16
