Description: The 20th Annual Vermiculture Conference will be on October 26-27, 2019. It's on Saturday and Sunday, which is more convenient for many folks. Parking is free on campus on the weekend, so it's an added bonus. 

We'll be in the awesome Hunt Library again on North Carolina State University's campus. It's far too early to have an agenda, so this is just a Hold the Date email. However, I updated the website with 2019 information that is currently available. I left the 2018 information on speakers and agenda on the website so you can see what we did last year. 

If you are interested in speaking at this year's event, send me an email with the following information: Presentation title, presentation content, your speaking experience, and your brief bio (like what is on the website about speakers). A committee will review your submission. Speakers receive a discount for the registration fee and no other compensation.

Mark your calendars!
