On the Road

We have just arrived in Abingdon, Virginia for the 16th Annual Mid-Atlantic Garden Faire this weekend at the Southwest Virginia Higher Education Center. I will be giving two presentations tomorrow.
From 11:45 until 1:00 I will be speaking on topics drawn from The New American Homestead, and helping audience members to discover how they can produce more food from home. The presentation will highlight how gardeners can find the space, sunshine, and time they need for food gardening.

From 2:00 until 3:15 I will be speaking on Pay Dirt: How to Make $10,000 a Year From Your Backyard Garden. Whether you raise produce for a restaurant, or nursery stock for a garden center, growing your own home-based business is easier than you think.

Both presentations will be taking place in the Executive Auditorium. Ample time will be available to answer questions from the audience.

The Garden Faire is sponsored by the Master Gardeners of Southwest Virginia, and features design competitions, a nature photography exhibit, a tour of rain gardens in the Abingdon area, exhibits from the American Chestnut Foundation and other non-profit groups, and a Garden Marketplace with many area vendors. Master Gardeners will be on hand to answer questions, too.

It is not too late to head up to Abingdon for tomorrow's events.

The Southwest Virginia Higher Education Center is located just off Interstate 81 at Exit 14.
See you there!
