Food forests, or edible forest gardens, are life-filled places that not only provide food for people, but habitat for wildlife, carbon sequestering, biodiversity, natural soil building, beauty and tranquility, and a host of other benefits. This workshop will cover the basics of designing, planting, and maintaining a many-layered woodland garden of fruit and nut trees, perennial and annual vegetables, and flowers. The day-long class will give you both the theory behind food forests and a wealth of practical information, including which plants to use, where to start, and what to expect as your food forest grows. We'll also look at ways to aid policy-makers in establishing public food forests.

3rd generation Iowa Farmer Howard Vlieger talks about GE/GMO crops

Moran County Library, Sat, Sept 7, 6:30-8:30

Hello Business Supporters of I-522,

Howard Vlieger is a 3rd generation farmer in Iowa.  He’s been working on his own farm and with other farmers and scientists on genetically engineered crops for almost 20 years.  He is coming out to Washington to share his experience and talk about what he’s learned regarding the impact of genetically engineered crops on farm operation and livestock.

The information he has will be very relevant to farmers and hobbyist farmers, but it will also be very educational for the general population who wants to learn more about genetically engineered crops.
