I am forwarding this announcement from Garrett and Melissa at The Good Life Farm. For those who don’t know about the Good Life Farm, it’s a really inspirational project that is seeking to build a post-fossil fuel food system based on permaculture principles. Check out their website www.thegoodlifefarm.org or read this article in Fresh Dirt magazine http://www.freshdirtmag.com/pdfs/new-beginnings.pdf.
This will be a fun, family-friendly event. If anyone is interested in joining a carpool from downtown Ithaca, please email me off-list at jharrod. Hope to see you there!
