It has already been an exciting week full of new prospects and events (there are more to come), but to add to that I am thrilled to announce that in early September I will be traveling to the Berkshires in New York State to conduct a full-day workshop on saving seed and preserving garden bounty in Margaret Roach’s [of Awaytogarden.com] garden.
Over the years, Margaret’s property has taken on near-mythical qualities in my mind’s eye and I am absolutely giddy with the prospect of having it blown apart by all that I imagine there is to discover in a well-loved and established garden built and tended by a creative force like Margaret.
I hope you will be able to join us for a day of fun, sharing, discovery, and learning, but since we know that not everyone can make the journey, Margaret is offering a giveaway of two copies of my most recent book, “Easy Growing: Organic Herbs and Edible Flowers from Small Spaces.” Please head over to her site to enter to win.
