forest garden trees books writing
I'm currently working towards a masters in Resource Management and Administration with a concentration in International Sustainable Development and Climate Change at Antioch University. I recently graduated from Marlboro College where I studied agroforestry and environmental writing. My particular interest was in northern temperate forest gardening. I have worked as a farm assistant, co-led community events and trips centered around the outdoors and gardening, as well as designed and planted edible, perennial landscapes. After traveling over the past four and a half years in Senegal, Cambodia, Europe, and Hawai’i and working and studying in New England, I was recently replanted in my hometown in New Jersey where I am tending to my many house plants and writing a series of fantasy novels. In my spare time, you can often find me volunteering at community gardens, hiking, or painting and drawing.

Hi Anne,

Welcome to Permies! I love temperate forest gardening, and I'm so excited to learn more about medicinal plants in forest gardening! I'm still a novice when it comes to homegrown medicinals. Thank you for joining us this week :)

:D



Thank you! Hurrah! It officially worked this time!

Edit: I did stuff to Todd, Kristen, and AngelinaGianna... if all you would check.



Thank you it works just fine now



Thank you! It looks like it's working for me as well!



Oh dear. I'm sorry! I spoke too soon. I am now getting an error message when I try to save my changes. I tried Chrome and Firefox on my computer.

Hi there, thank you for working on this! I just checked and, unfortunately, I'm still not seeing the bumper stickers option.

Owen Wormser, author of Lawns Into Meadows

Landscape designer Owen Wormser is making the case for turning lawns into meadows in his new book. In a world where lawns have wreaked havoc on our natural ecosystems, meadows offer a compelling solution: they establish wildlife and pollinator habitats. They’re low-maintenance and low-cost. They have a built-in resilience that helps them weather climate extremes, and they can draw down and store far more carbon dioxide than any manicured lawn.

In his new book, Lawns Into Meadows, Owen Wormser creates a clear guide for experienced and beginner gardeners alike to transform their monocrop lawns into beautiful, life-giving meadows.

Douglas W. Tallamy, author of Bringing Nature Home and Nature's Best Hope wrote:It’s time to rebuild meadows wherever we can, including the deadscape we call lawn. Owen Wormser explains why, and how to do this, with oodles of highly readable, ecologically sound advice.





You can learn more about Lawns Into Meadows, read an excerpt here, and buy it here or anywhere where books are sold.

Hi Kristen! A thesis about temperate forest gardening, how interesting! Could we talk about this on skype soon?



Hi Thomas! Thank you for your interest! I'd be happy to talk further! Feel free to send me a "Purple Mooseage" so we can coordinate about a time to talk!

Hi, thank you all for looking into this! In response to Nicole's question, I'm on my computer using the Firefox browser.
Hello Mike,

Thank you for the visual! Unfortunately, I don't see that option in the menu. I'll attach a screenshot of what I'm seeing
Hello there, I keep going to my profile and looking through all of the '+' signs and all of the settings, and I can't find a place to add bumper stickers. Is there a new way to add stickers? Is it because I'm new to the forum that I can't view this option? I would love any advice as I think it would be fun to participate in this whole bumper sticker business!
