Join me this Saturday at the Tantallon Library!

This Sat, Oct 22nd, I will be offering a lecture on four-season gardening as part of the following full-day workshop. It's only a $10 donation to attend this workshop - which includes a locally sourced lunch from the amazing Flying Apron Cookery!! I'm also looking forward to the intro by Bob Cervelli, a talented four-season gardener who will be featured in my upcoming book. Hope to see you there!
