    I am dabbling in many of these strategies and it was great to see them all summarized as a flowing strategy force. Mostly, I became inspired by you, Marjorie. Your positive attitude and presentation is infectious. Thank you for the work that you do.

    Loving it!

    One time I went out with friends to attend a St. Patrick's Day lunch that is an annual fundraiser for the little fire department in a nearby town. I was surprised to see a big colony of spotted rabbits near the fire station! The more I thought about it, the better I liked the idea. Hawks, though, would seem like a problem.

    I'm going check out that website!

    Great job, Marjory! Is there anything you don't know about this natural living? I'm so impressed. Of course, I can't relate or take part of most of what you shared here b/c I live in a city, but it sure was interesting. I didn't know most of it! Thanks! Karen

    Just wondering if Day 7 presentation by Marjory is a replay of Day 4 presentation? Love all the presenters and their deep knowledge.

    #11 Have the means to preserve it! Glad for the interview w/ Joel this afternoon where he mentioned canning jar lids. While I still have plenty (43 dozen) wide-mouth, I only have TWO dozen regular mouth lids left. YIKES! Time to look for sales.

    I LOVE the selection of presentations this year! So timely! With the world gone to sh..., uh, “manure“, it’s time to act on that phrase “overGROW, not overthrow, the establishment.”

    Are you with me, fellow Seedlings?!

    Thanks, you touched on a lot of different strategies that work together for sustainable food growing systems. I'm glad you're making this information available every year with the Home Grown Food Summit. The more people who are introduced to these methods, the better off we all are.

    You mentioned seedling grown is often stronger than grafted. Where I live in NZ, the commercial variety for peaches is Golden Queen, which is the least resistant when it comes to disease. Unfortunately it is also the most common rootstock for peach trees, which does not set things up well. The most disease resistant peach (in NZ) is Blackboy. The fruit is a dark crimson. Very easy to grow organically(the red leafed hiawatha is also disease resistant). Those who have trees save the pits when processing and we give them to our local grower and she has been using them as rootstock to get stronger trees. Great way the co minity gets together.
