2014 Florida Earthskills Gathering, Day 1

What I Learned:

Good thoughts and singing can help light a fire.

You can call someone "they" if that person doesn't identify as male or female.

The "counterculture" is friendlier than the mainstream culture.

Hippies don't really wear tie-dye anymore.

Rain and cold can't stop a good time if folks are dedicated enough.


What I Taught:

Creating food forests in Florida.

The importance of a diverse ecosystem.

Growing trees from seed is worthwhile.

How weeds heal the ground.


Virtual Friends I Finally Met In Person:

Andi, of Greenbasket.me. I gave her some organic homegrown tobacco for her hookah, she gave me a Mysore raspberry. Win-win.


And Finally:

I'll be back there again tomorrow morning to teach on annual gardening in Florida... ought to be fun... I'll try to post again after that.
