Historical Society Presents Daniel Botkin

Adapted from a Historical Society of Greenfield press release:

Daniel Botkin, manager of Laughing Dog Farm in Gill, will speak about Backyard Permaculture at the Historical Society of Greenfield on Tuesday, September 17th.  Backyard permaculture seeks to integrate the concepts and practices of ecological design with practical four-season food production, even on marginal land or in small spaces. Daniel will describe innovative "guerilla gardening" and season extension techniques that he has honed on his five-acre lot, including low-till, vertical farming, and winter tunnels. For over ten years, Daniel and his wife, Divya, have been hand-raising diverse produce, flowers, herbs, fruits, rabbits, and goats. They operate a small CSA and teach a variety of do-it-yourself farming and food-oriented workshops from the farm and beyond.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the talk begins at 7:00.  As always, the evening is free and open to the public (but voluntary donations are gratefully accepted at the door) and there will be time after the presentation for questions and conversation.  The Historical Society of Greenfield is located at 43 Church Street, at the corner of Union, in Greenfield.
