Ever wanted to know how to can the produce you grow or buy at the farmer's market? How can you make your home more energy-efficient without hiring a contractor? Is there really a market for those medicinal herbs growing in your woods? The fourth annual Growing Appalachia conference, put on by Kentuckians for the Commonwealth, will answer those questions and more on Saturday, March 9 at the Jenny Wiley Convention Center in Prestonsburg, KY. This year's focus is on energy and local agriculture for beginners and those with a little more experience. It's free, but a $10 donation is suggested to cover the costs of the locally-sourced lunch.
