We are thrilled to announce that Mary Berry, Executive Director of The Berry Center in Kentucky, will join us as the keynote for our 2016 Expo and Annual Meeting, held this year at the Red Lion Hotel in Kalispell, Montana, from October 7 – 9. The non-profit environmental magazine Grist recently named Mary one of the “50 People You’ll be Talking About in 2016” as leading us toward a more sustainable future – read it here!
This year’s Expo and Annual Meeting theme, What We Need is Here, comes from a poem by Wendell Berry, Mary Berry’s father, and we believe it captures the spirit of self-reliance and local resilience that powers our Expo and Annual Meeting, which will feature panels, workshops, demos, and the good times, inspiration, and camaraderie you’ve come to expect from an AERO gathering. Read the poem here.
More details coming soon!
