I'm back in the Chronicle--The First Sunday of Each Month--sometimes later. My new column, which appears in the Sunday Food + Home section, includes short Q&A, book reviews, events, new plants and products, and gardening tips. Sometimes I will write blog posts that expand on topics covered in my column.
My April column will appear on April 16th, and is on growing crops for spring salads, coordinated with some salad recipes by Chronicle food editors.
Upcoming Public Events
I will be speaking at the Fairfax Backyard Farmer symposium, in Fairfax, CA, on April 30th, 12 Noon to 5 pm. There will be four speakers: Novella Carpenter, on urban farming; my talk, which will be on climate change and gardens; Gretchen LeBuhn, on bio-regional pollinators; and Karen Diggs, on the human microbiome (and recipes for fermented food). After the lectures there will be a Backyard Farmer Panel Q & A.
The event, which is sponsored by the Fairfax Backyard Farmer (a store) will be at the Fairfax Women's Club, 46 Park Rd, Fairfax California, in Marin County. Admission is $15.
