[Updated May 2014] Pam, our long-time Garden Manager, in spare moments away from managing our 3.5 acre organic garden has been busy publicizing and selling her book, Sustainable Market Farming. The focus is educating people about how to grow food for a large number of people, using biological methods, and only a few acres of land, which is exactly what Pam and our intrepid Garden Crew do each year for the approximately 100 people who live here. The book draws on the work Pam has done writing articles for Growing for Market, a national magazine about market gardening.
