WEDNESDAY, June 11, 2014
Time: 6-8 pm
LOCATION: WHOLE FOODS COMMUNITY ROOM-(the small Whole Foods on Cordova and St. Francis)
GUEST SPEAKER: Erin O’Neill
Erin will talk about ‘4 Season Harvests in the High Desert’
‘In 2000, Erin O’Neill moved to Santa Fe in 2000 , where she continued her work in educational gardening in various capacities, most recently as the garden consultant for the Culinary Arts Garden on the Santa Fe Community College (SFCC) campus. The garden was recently honored with a Sustainable Santa Fe award as an innovative food production system, and O’Neill was recognized for her dedicated efforts at the college. Before the 16-bed garden and 21-tree fruit orchard came to fruition, it was “just an empty dirt courtyard” outside the East Wing Eatery. Its evolution into an award-winning food production system began several years ago.’ Excerpts taken from The New Mexican in an article written about Erin O’Neill and the SFCC Culinary Gardens.
In addition, Erin O’Neill also co-founded Radical Homemakers along with Arinna Pittman of Permaculture Institute and Kyce Bello. Radical Homemakers are people from all walks of life who are reclaiming the home as a site for political and ecological activism. Radical Homemaking is a journey of discovery as we reconnect with life skills and our unique purpose and passion in the name of making a better world and life.
