November 20, 2006 – Iowa Organic Conference

Today was the Iowa Organic Conference in Ames. I helped man the Wholesome Harvest booth and got to talk to many producers looking for markets for their meat. I was heartened that the director of the Iowa Organic division within the state department of agriculture requested as addition of four staff positions to the staff, all were approved by the out-going Secretary of Agriculture, who now sits in the Lieutenant Governor’s office – so there is great hope that those additional positions will be filled.
