A Live Event With Doug Fine
Could it really be true? Seventy-seven years of prohibition of one of humanity’s longest-utilized and most useful plants is ending? It is true. And just in the nick of time. Humanity desperately needs a natural fibers-based replacement for petro- and chemical-plastics, GMO-based foods, and fossil fuel-based energy.  Hemp is that replacement: two years of research by bestselling author Doug Fine shows that anything petroleum, chemicals and GMOs can do, hemp can do better. We’ll learn how to make it happen in the ground and in the economy.

Santa Fe Harvest Swap

This in from the organization: Radical Homemakers of New Mexico

The third annual Santa Fe Harvest Swap is just around the corner!
It will be held Sunday, OCTOBER 26th 2014 from 10-1pm in the Railyard Park Community Room.

The swap is free, and according to our past participants, one of the funnest events of the year. It is a chance to showcase your specialties from the kitchen, and to take home a wide variety of goodies from fellow swappers. The experience of celebrating the year’s abundance in a joyful exchange will leave you inspired and feeling connected to kindred souls. Come join us!

While the name Harvest Swap was inspired by the epic fruit year of 2012, it is a little misleading. You don’t need to bring things you grew or harvested yourself (though you certainly can). Really most of the swapping is of prepared items: baked treats, specialty condiments, goat cheese and cultured butter, jams and preserves, fermented items, herb teas and tinctures, soap and salves, and so on. Still, all these things originate as a harvest, so in honor of that we’re sticking with the name.

FOR MORE INFORMATION AND TO REGISTER  PLEASE DO SO HERE!  Participants are limited so sign up now!

Looking forward to seeing you and your creations on the big day!

Next Year’s Kitchen Garden and Coop Tour in 2015

Chicken and Garden Graphic_72dpi We’re looking for PROPERTIES for the 2015 Kitchen Garden & Coop Tour!

Do you or someone you know have fantastic kitchen gardens in the greater Santa Fe area? Kitchen gardens, herb gardens, potagers, goats, chickens, water collection system, composting systems, permaculture sites, urban farms or sustainable living sites are some of the things we’d like to see if you have some of them— but not all are necessary to be considered.

Want to show it off??? If so, we want to know about it.

Did you go on the tour this year and think, my property should be on this tour?

We are currently looking for inspiring properties for next year’s tour.

Interested? Let’s talk! We’d like to come see your gardens before they go away for winter!!!
