A Preview: CanoLAB in Pictures

Alberta’s CanoLAB kicked off this week in Olds, Alberta. The event was jam-packed with hands-on sessions involving disease, frost, insects, inputs and Olympics coverage — oh, that last bit was over lunch: totally legit.

If you missed CanoLAB this year, following are some photos for your perusal (plus Saskatchewan and Manitoba have yet to host their events!)  And maybe I’ll take this opportunity to thank some fellow tweeps for their shots included below and uhh, Lyndsey Smith for her help with captions….
