Grow Your Own Food Summit

Anyone interested in learning more about growing your own food?
I totally am, and I'm super excited about this free online event where you can watch some amazing speakers for free! Joel Salatin is going to be speaking and I can't wait. Here's the blurb:
JoelSalatin"The Grow Your Own Food Summit will teach food growing people, both novices and experts, how to improve the world more than any other event in the last decade. Learn step-by-step instructions for what you can do today to put healthy, trusted food on your table in the future! Plus, it’s ONLINE and FREE from July 7-14, 2014.
Enthusiastic food growers and community builders, Valerie Kausen and Gary Heine, have created 34 presentations to show you how growing your own food can change your life. This event is truly for everyone… because growing your own food contributes to improved health and connected community. It’s also an activity for the whole family that builds friendships in your neighborhood as you share each other’s skills and interests
