How local can you grow? Perfect for urban residents who don’t have a big yard, R.J. Ruppenthal’s new book Fresh Food from Small Spaces reveals how to harvest something delicious from any patio, balcony, rooftop, windowsill, or cabinet. No space is too small or too dark! In this interactive talk, Ruppenthal will share ideas from his book and show examples of gardens in compact urban locations. A surprising variety of food can be grown in even the most cramped and paved of quarters—sprouts, mushrooms, ferments and cultures, vegetables, even berries and fruit trees! Reception to follow with some locally grown snacks. Admission is free.
