We hope to see all you garden, food and farm enthusiasts (as well as your friends, neighbors and family) in just a couple of days at Dig In! 2013. Please consider forwarding this email to your friends and networks in case they haven’t heard about all the events available this weekend. With classes, talks, tastings, info-fair, vendors, films, all celebrating local gardens, food and farms, there is something of interest for everyone. The teachers, speakers, volunteers and supporters are all working hard to make this a green and growing (and tasty!) event you won’t want to miss.
Dig In! is offered on a donation basis so that everyone who wishes can attend. The festival is funded entirely by donations and sponsors, so if you are able, we invite you to pre-purchase supporters passes that both help fund the event and also make festival day registration a breeze: http://diginfestival.com/supporters/
