Meetup details changed: Doomsday Gardening In Southern Missouri - 10/13/13

From: Kathleen
Sent on: Monday, October 7, 2013 10:31 PM

I've updated this Meetup. For more details, see the full listing:
http://www.meetup.com/Rationalist-Society-of-Saint-Louis/events/144414192/

When: Sunday, October 13,[masked]:00 PM

Where: Hoops Hall,  1806 Allen Ave ,  St. Louis, MO 63104

 

Continuing our pre-halloween theme of scary topics, we will watch a video this week featuring a man who lives in southwest Missouri and claims to have worked out a system of gardening that doesn't involve harmful chemicals but that provides an amazing abundance of food - 10 foot tall tomato plants, copious piles of nutritious vegetables, etc.   He claims that the collapse of civilization, which he expects tomorrow or the next day, will require that we all garden this way, and that his method of gardening will allow us all to be food self sufficient without using a lot of space or effort.   Is this hype or happenin'?  Does the video he sells give you enough information to actually garden this way, or do you need to attend his classes in person to be able to learn enough to garden this way?  It seems that his claim that we all need much better dirt to farm in is a reasonable claim, and would be applicable to urban areas where the dirt is also often pretty poor for farming.   SHow up, learn and debate!

 

Please bring recent news items to share, and snacks!  Yes, bring snacks!

RSVP limit: 25 "Yes" RSVPs
