How to Size a Breakfast Nook Table

There exists a long list of bedeviling problems outside the short attention span of our mainstream cultural gatekeepers who busy themselves with such frivolities as “how do we get to mars?” and “what’s Justin Bieber tweeting about?” Readers of this blog have more important concerns such as how to keep tomatoes alive or how to […]

Lessons from the 2018 Theodore Payne Garden Tour

The gardening equivalent of Beyoncé’s triumphant 2018 Coachella performance took place on the very same weekend. Theodore Payne’s annual garden tour reunited pollinator friendly plantings, low water use and great design in a sort of horticultural equivalent of the return of Destiny’s Child. Lush and traditional garden design even made a Jay-Z like cameo appearance […]

Thanks! I was interested in your comment regarding bringing 4H to city kids. I have been thinking about doing something similar to that where inner city kids could come to the farm as part of a summer program. They could be part of the planting, harvesting and selling of veggies (learning life skills) in addition to feeding and caring for the animals. I have a friend who works with kids in East L.A. as part of an after school program and we are trying to incorporate the concept into a package that works here in MA. Big Plans!...maybe too big. And yes, hippie attire is mandatory

Just purchased your book along with Scott Kellogg's "Toolbox for Sustainable City Living." As a resident of Baltimore City, they're right down my alley! Can't wait to read.
