If you’re able to do so before the meeting, listen to Scott Mann’s podcast called “The Permaculture Podcast.” Episode 1506 aired on Feb 11th 2015, and was an interview with Holly Brown. Holly farms less than one acre. Her “farm organically supports herself and two interns financially, while keeping three restaurants stocked with vegetables, provided fifteen CSA shares, and also fed herself, those interns, and her extended family. She even had enough left over to give to local food pantries. She accomplishes all of this while married with two children, and without the use of insecticides, herbicides, or any tilling.”
Here is a link to listen to and/or download the podcast:
Amanda suggested that if people listen to the podcast ahead of time, she could answer any questions that come up.
