Hi to all,
This promises to be a great event with two extraordinary people. Michael Pilarski is a walking encyclopedia, ( I think of him as one of our Northwest Treasures!) and Matt Van Boven has been developing an inspiring forest farm. His place is across the street from ours and Matt has been planting thousands of edible plants for years. They have built several alternative material buildings and are developing a permaculture farm that will inspire you to try new things. Consider attending this workshop and spread the word!!
