8:15 - 8:45 am Keynote Address
Andrew Millison, horticulture instructor for Oregon State University, will open the Living on Your Land Conference as keynote speaker. He brings more than 20 years of experience in designing and building permaculture projects to his teaching. Says Andrew, "Permaculture design is a method of landscape planning that mimics the relationships and patterns found in nature and can be applied at many scales, from a home garden or farm to a city block to urban planning." Millison's keynote is a highlight of what promises to be an inspiring and informative conference!
Most exhibits are located in the lobby next to the Cafe. We encourage you to browse the exhibits for information and inspiration that will make your participation in the Living on Your Land Conference even more rewarding!
