Hey, all. Soil Born Farms Education Coordinator, Sarah Barnes, gave me a heads up about a cool event they’re hosting next Wednesday, August 20th. Community Night at the Farm will have Toby Hemenway as guest speaker. Hemenway is a permaculture expert and author of Gaia’s Garden: A Guide to Home-Scale Permaculture. The focus of his presentation will be “Rethinking Drought”; a timely topic.
Robert Kourik, author of Designing and Maintaining Your Edible Landscape– Naturally calls Hemenway’s book “… enlightening and required reading for all people who desire to make their home’s landscape healthy, sustainable, and healing.”
