Of all the people whose gardening wisdom I follow, here are two that I most admire and trust.
Margaret Roach is the author of two books I proudly own – A Way to Garden: A Hands-On Primer for Every Season which I have had for years and and And I Shall Have Some Peace There: Trading in the Fast Lane for My Own Dirt Road.
Both books are about gardening — the former of plants and trees, the latter of a human being. Both remain on my coffee table, in view and in reach. Both steady my nerves, wipe some of the stress off my soul and help me come back to ground.
C.R. Lawn’s name is new to me but his work in organic gardening and market growing is not. C.R. Lawn is the man behind Fedco Seeds. If you are an organic gardener, you know this company.
Fedco Seeds has been selling organic, non-GMO seeds for more than 30 years. As a cooperative, “profit is not our primary goal,” according to their site. Sure, they sell seeds, but what Fedco is really in the business of doing is cooperatively finding, growing, and sharing seeds, trees and knowledge with gardeners around the globe..
Margaret Roach was generous enough to share her interview with this legend of organic gardening; I wanted to share it with you as these two are among the 365 people and organizations who, I believe, are changing the world. Enjoy!
