Kuhn, Lindsay Dig In Life Skills- Food,

Smoke Ridge Farm is an organic sustainable farm in upstate NY. Using a modified square foot garden method, we plant enough food to feed 40 families on just 5 acres. During the program, the presenter will help patrons plant their own square foot garden, using heirloom seeds. An alternative will be to use a box demo garden to inspire patrons of all ages to be aware of where their food comes from and to eat local. I will also talk about farming green (using real live horse power), heirloom seeds and seed saving, do it yourself vertical hydroponics, environmental conservation using butterflies, and horse rescue and rehabilitation. This program is suitable for the 2014 summer reading program.
