Happy Gumdrop Day!

Mark your calendars! February 15 is not just the day after Valentine’s day, nor is it just the day Anda Creative is filing its taxes. It’s National Gumdrop Day. Many of you may have received an announcement in the mail, but if not, don’t worry. It simply means you’re not on our mailing list. Send us your contact information so you don’t miss out on big events such as National Gumdrop Day (and if you hurry, we can mail you a GD Day card to help celebrate…and make your own GD’s). All the cool kids are doing it!

SSAWG 2011 (Southern Sustainable Agriculture Working Group)

Back Forty Creative is back in St. Louis after a trip to Chattanooga, TN for the 2011 SSAWG conference. Despite traveling with a snow and ice storm from St. Louis to Nashville, the conference went very well.

ACRES 2010 – A Voice for Eco-Agriculture

Blueberry_Ink
Back Forty left Indiana Ave. in Missouri for Missouri Ave. in Indiana to attend last week’s 2010 ACRES U.S.A. Conference. Indianapolis was as clean and friendly as our exhibit booth … until we broke out the blueberry ink. It went over really well, minus the person visiting an adjacent booth who reached over and tried to write his contact information with quill and ink. A frustrated Byron Dale gave up.

It was a great experience to be a part of the organic farming community. We received a lot of positive feedback about our work, obtained several good contacts and leads, enjoyed the company of our neighboring booth (Thanks for the organic lollipops, Barb!),  and were encouraged to attend even more organic farming conferences. We see MOSES and SSAWG in the near future, so we hope to see you there, too.  In the meantime, we’d love to hear from any attendees.

Shooting the final roll of Kodachrome at the Missouri State Fair

This is a recent article written by Robert Cohen of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

For six decades it sat perched atop the mountain, the king of color film. But time has almost run out for Kodachrome. The last photo lab in the United States that still develops it is in Parsons, Kansas. Dwayne’s Photo will process their last roll on December 30. Post-Dispatch photographer Robert Cohen found his last roll of Kodachrome 200 and took it to the Missouri State Fair in Sedalia.
