As any garden amatuer knows, keeping even a modest garden and orchard productive can be a full time job and, like the small producers we support at our local farmer’s markets, can pose an array of difficult challenges to overcome. Deborah’s gardens and orchards give us a pocket size view of what can be done on a small scale and underlines the challenges we all face in the quest for sustainable production. Join us as we salute the Urban Backyard Farmer!

Parking will be available on site. Turn up the driveway when you see the zebras on the mailbox!
