Lots of events coming up!
Tomorrow and next Wednesday my wife and I are off to staff some Slow Food events hosted by one of our Chef customers . We will have the oppurtunity to educate the attendees on some of our favorite cultivars (we’ll have Kennebec, Purple Viking, Elba, Carola, and Desiree) as well as show how they can be combined with other easy to grow vegetables Garlic (Music), Onions (Red Baron) and Leeks (Blue Solaize) to create incredible hearty, healthy and sustainable food… with the dishes prepared by a gourmet chef!
Then, in less than a month, I will be participating in the Madison Bioneer Conference (From Here to There) as a panel speaker on Saturday afternoon 11/14 if anyone is in the area. The event is promoting Real World solutions to food, energy, transportation, and community building to help us bridge to a Better Tomorrow. A very strong focus will be on success stories already up and running in the area. I am incredibly flattered that our little Suburban Experiment and small Market Garden were chosen to be part of such a cast of Heros (Will Allen is a Keynote speaker). Very, very excited about this.
There are certainly enough headlines and anecdotal evidence out there to feed our inner Doomsday Voice. It will be fantastic to be focused on evangelising on how far we’ve come in so little time (we personally started less than 4 years ago) and using that message to inspire hundreds more to pick up the torch and start their own One Straw Revolutions.
Fukuoka lives on in our actions and we are forever in his debt. More importantly we each have our own piece to add to the unfolding story that is our society’s answer to the challenges of our age.
Be the Change!
