Crabtree Farms Fall Plant Sale – Saturday, Sept 8th

Come by Crabtree Farms, Chattanooga’s urban educational sustainable agriculture farm, for their annual fall plant sale. I will be speaking about creating an herbal “farmacy” in your yard and how to use it. Or, if you have already started an herb garden, but aren’t sure that you’re putting it to use, you’ll likely go home with some new appreciation for the medicinal qualities of your garden and some confidence in how to use it. My talk is at 10:30am Saturday, and it is followed by great talks on composting by Bud Hines, and an organing gardening Q & A by Joel Houser.

About Crabtree Farms, from their website:

“Crabtree Farms was founded in 1998 to bring urban sustainable agriculture to Chattanooga. The mission of Crabtree Farms is to promote research & education in sustainable agriculture.  Crabtree Farms serves the greater Chattanooga community through education and advocacy programs that teach about growing food sustainably and choosing local produce.”
