The Forest Garden Greenhouse - Book Tour
Saturday, March 5, 2016
2:00 PM
Lemon Grove Public Library
3001 School Lane, Lemon Grove, CA
Chelsea Green author Jerome Osentowski will talk about and introduce his new book, The Forest Garden Greenhouse: How to Design and Manage an Indoor Permaculture Oasis. Jerome, one of North America’s most accomplished permaculture designers, and director and founder of Central Rocky Mountain Permaculture Institute, presents a new approach to a very old horticultural subject. He shows how bringing the forest garden indoors is not only possible, but doable on unlikely terrain and in cold climates, using near-net-zero technology. Different from other greenhouse design and management, Osentowski advocates for an indoor agriculture using permaculture design concepts—integration, multi-functions, perennials, and polycultures—that take season extension into new and important territory.

My friend Claudia already bought her ticket to go to Greece and help Syrian Refugees as much as she can. She is paying for her own way and all expenses she might incur during her trip and is already filling suitcases with donations of medicine and so forth. She also started a crowd funding campaign to be able to purchase more much needed supplies. Here is her campaign. Please help if you can and spread the word.

I am trying to grow some more permanent stuff inbetween the large leaves - so far, so good. Just have to remember to cut the leaves back if they produce too much shade....
