The link to the Hort. conference in Idaho is dysfunctional now. Fitting for a state that schedules its Nursery Association conference in January every year. Would you drive nearly 500 miles over icy mountain roads to sit in meetings for a week? Neither would I. Luckily, there was a nice sustainable ag conference much nearer last week, when the roads were much safer. This one was in Creston, BC Canada, just over the line from here. Take a look at the specs and the speakers. This was targeted at growers & marketers and good for a first time effort. They also have a great summer gardening event each year, full of classes & tours and fresh summer food.
In the end, this may be the most important thing about frost: Frost slows us down. In spring, it tempers our eagerness. In fall, it brings closure and rest. In our gotta-go world–where every nanosecond seems to count–slowness can be a great gift. So rather than see Jack Frost as an adversary, you could choose to greet him as a friend.
