Wonderful Guest: Alison Wiediger, July 20, 2009 - 5 PM

Greens grower extraordinaire Alison Wiediger joins us at 5:00 PM Monday, July 20 - one hour before the usual Supper start time - to talk with us about growing vegetables year-round, using unheated high tunnels, also known as hoop houses. Please come!

Alison and her husband Paul own Au Naturel Farm in Smiths Grove, Kentucky. The Wiedigers are national experts on high tunnels. They have written Walking to Spring, a book about using high tunnels to grow food year round. They do workshops around the country, and share generously with others about ways to launch and sustain a successful, profitable farm-based business like theirs.

Of great interest to both growers and eaters: the opportunity for growers to create real profits and for eaters to enjoy fresh local salads in deep winter, thanks to greens grown in high tunnels.

Come at 5:00 on Monday, July 20, 2009, to talk with Alison, and stay for the usual Cornbread Supper, starting at 6 PM. See the sidebar for location and other details about Cornbread Suppers.

All are welcome.
