I gave a tour of my garden yesterday to a group from the Kalamazoo Climate Change Coalition, who are in the early planning stages of a “food forest” collaboration with the local Nature Center. Thankfully the rain held off and we were able to spend a good amount of time walking around and talking about plants, strategies, goals, mistakes, etc. At the end of the walk, I had fresh Pawpaw fruit for them to try—none of them had eaten it before and they ALL liked it!

Demonstrating some of my favorite gardening tools, the Japanese “kama” sickle and “hori-hori” trowel.

Today members of the KCCC Sustainable Food and Green Infrastructure working groups took a tour of Mike Hoag and PJ Chmiel’s food forests! What a great way to spend the afternoon.
