"Paradise Lot: Growing an Edible Garden Oasis" - a talk by Jonathan Bates
Monday May 13, 6:00-8:00pm
Tompkins County Public Library- Borg Warner Room, 101 East Green Street, Ithaca 14850

Jonathan Bates, contributing author of "Paradise Lot: Two plant geeks, one-tenth of an acre, and the making of an edible garden oasis," speaks about his 10-year-old edible forest garden in Holyoke, MA.  By using the principles of permaculture design, Jonathan and co-author Eric Toensmeier created a thriving edible ecosystem from a blighted dead landscape. Enjoy learning about our delicious uncommon fruit and perennial vegetables, a year-round food bioshelter greenhouse, raising micro-livestock like black soldier flies and aquaponic fish, using microclimates for growing figs and kiwis, starting a successful backyard plant nursery (foodforestfarm.com<http://foodforestfarm.com>), and enjoying the cornucopia with friends and family. Jonathan will present his challenge-to-opportunity story through vibrant pictures and enlightening discussion. Signed books will be available for purchase.
