Keeping the Light Alive: Low-Carbon Food Farming on the Dark Side
with Danny Botkin
of Laughing Dog Farm, Gill
Slides/Lecture/Q&A with Growers
Why do so many gardeners/foodies essentially "close up shop" and stop harvesting/making fresh food after the frost? Did you know you can keep delicious, healthy, greens alive through winter, even in chilly New England, using no fuel or added heat! And, you can also maintain "enlightening" home food production projects, like seed saving, seed sprouting, and/or secondary food processing, even during the coldest days of winter.
Farmer Dan Botkin of Gill will offer a passionate primer and slide show introduction to cold weather, permaculture-inspired, backyard-scale horticulture, as well as a well-seasoned testimonial on the psycho-social benefits of keeping food "alive" through winter.
