In preparing for a Fashion in the Garden posting I have been reading the spring issue of Vogue magazine. Strictly business you understand. Besides, Tina Fey was on the cover.
Although I wasn’t looking for it, there was a little feature on page 370, The Green List, with John Patrick’s (whoever he may be) five latest (fashion everywhere) faves. There is seedlibrary.org for heirloom seeds; Emiliano Godoy, an industrial designer who focuses on sustainability; Magnus Larsson, a Swedish architect working to stop the spread of the Sahara!; Ecocradle for shipping materials made of mycelium, — remember you heard it here first; and Edible Forest Gardens by Dave Jacke with Eric Toensmeier. Well, Dave Jacke is headquartered right in our own green county. I hope to catch up with him this spring. I met Eric Toensmeier when he spoke at the local Master Gardener’s Spring Symposium a couple of years ago and bought his book. I am going to plant perennial Good King Henry (Chenopodium bonus- henricus) in my Henry garden.
Who knows who I’ll meet at this year’s Spring Symposium. Check out the full schedule and info.
