I was glad to reconnect with an old friend and meet new ones. Many, many questions and horticultural conversations were discussed from tomatoes to planting trees to planning prairie restorations. Weeds were removed in quick order and 31.9 lbs of produce were donated to Valley Outreach food shelf.
The common thread to all we discussed and did wound around life long exploration and learning and the idea of Permaculture: "The conscious design and maintenance of agriculturally productive ecosystems which have the diversity, stability, and resilience of natural ecosystems. It is the harmonious integration of landscape and people providing their food, energy, shelter, other material and non-material needs in a sustainable way. Planning for future generations.
