Meeting at Bishop's Homegrown 5604 S. State Rd. 60 Pekin IN 47165
don't forget the upcoming Homegrown Goodness/Hip-Gnosis Seed Development Seed Exchange, meet up, and cook out! Lot's of folks from the homegrown goodness messageboard at alanbishop.proboards60.com will be there including a number of seed savers, plant breeders, and in general self sufficient afficianados. Bring some seeds, extra tools, books, or your hobbies to demonstrate or trade or just bring yourself for a go...odtime to be had by all. There will be lots of seeds and other goods for exchange, but also just plain good company, good food, good friends, and information exchange!
We will be meeting here at Bishop's Homegrown at 10:00 AM on Saturday September the 18'th where we will take a short tour of the farm and talk a bit about plant breeding, vermiculture, and breeding and raising heritage turkeys before we head out to Salem to check out Old Settlers Days to give the out of towners a taste of local culture and history. Bring a bit of cash as we will likely be eating lunch at the festival. We plan on heading to Karen Padgetts house in Paoli Indiana at around 2:00 p.m. where we will host the seed exchange and get together and eat supper. Plenty of activities are planned and it should be a great time. Karen has a wonderful perrinial garden and is full of information about all things ornamental, as well her husband is known locally for the quality of his rabbit breeding stock and is also a fantastic source for information.
If you live locally and aren't coming from out of town, feel free to bring a covered dish. If you can't meet up until later in the evening at Karen's feel free to e-mail her or send her a private message via facebook or homegrown goodness regarding directions to her home.
We hope to see all of you there!
