For those of you interested in a holistic approach to growing edibles, check out this video about Lost Nation Orchard.
All signs indicate that 2008 will be a big year for kitchen gardens. Food prices are up, people are interested in eating locally, and people are wanting to be more connected to the food they eat. In support of the goal of eating locally and growing our own food, MCG is sponsoring three initiatives:
- Kitchen Garden Day
: On August 24, 2008, MCG will celebrate International Kitchen Garden Day with a garden tour and harvest feast.
If you’re interested in getting involved in any of these initiatives, please contact us at maynardgardeners [Email address: maynardgardeners #AT# gmail.com - replace #AT# with @ ].
