Hello!  I just helped one of our small farmers sign up for this... very little tech ability... is there a number or a contact I can call if he calls me and is having trouble?

Sarah - you can call me at 402.444.7833 if it is before the event.  If it is close to or during the workshop, the best option would probably be to email me since I'll be watching my inbox but won't be able to take calls.
