Global Living Project

This weekend I'm hiking in to a place near East Corinth, Vermont, called the Barra Homestead, a land-trust set up in the spirit of Scott and Helen Nearing, famous back-to-the-landers, for a two day workshop on growing food for self-reliance. Techniques such as creating guilds, energy and nutrient cycling, mulching, cover-crops, pest and weed management, diversity, and succession will be explored. I'm hoping to learn how I, and Destiny as well, can use Vermont land for growing food. They also have some hand-hewn timberframe structures there that I want to check out. The program I'm attending is part of the Global Living Project. I'll let y'all know what happens next week!
