2012 Sustainable Living Conference in Plant City, Florida

I had a great time today there. Good folks, good loving energy, lots of knowledge and plants and seeds swapped. I especially enjoyed meeting Florida wild plants guru Andy Firk and taking his tour of the World Acre Farms property for edible plants, and hearing  and seeing Jungle Jay's expansive overview of global warming, bio-char plus archaeology and paleo-history as regards human agricultural innovation and mega-fauna like mastodons. My presentation addressed creating ethnic cuisine using spice combinations, and, mostly, home made fermented, probiotic-foods. Andy gave me quite a few seeds of two bean varieties that have evolved in his yard over the years here in Florida....a black turtle bean and an Anastazi (sp?) bean.

 A day of sharing indeed.  John
