On a quest for sustainable gardening practices, I came across Gaia's Garden by Toby Hemenway - ever since, I've been looking for ways to implement permaculture principles on the very small scale that is my community garden. I'm looking forward to the day when I have more land to work with!
Aside from growing the Three Sisters, everything I know comes from books - hoping for that to change soon.
A willingness to work! As well as skills gained from an internship with Growing Power - basic knowledge of composting, vermicomposting, and aquaponics.
After graduating college, I discovered that gardening/farming is something I love and want to pursue. For the last 5 years, I've been working in and around the Chicago farming community - learning and practicing what I can.
