Art of gardening
I will be visiting with the Wartrace Arts Community at the Wartrace Community Center at 7 pm tonight, chatting about gardening, of course.
I suspect that many of the attendees will already know as much or maybe more as me about local gardening so after we establish their knowledge, we will probably explore the definitions of "organic". Yup, there is more than one interpretation. Biodynamic, Sustainable, Industrial Organics, Beyond Organics, Holistic Organic, etc., etc.
What does "GMO" mean with the positive and negatives and an interesting question Pam brought up at our Weed'em & Reap meeting. "how can you have an heirloom hybrid?"
An heirloom is a seed that stays true to form and has been passed down for many years. In most cases, 50 years is a rule of thumb, but as with anything, there are differing opinions.
And since we are talking with artists, what about garden art? This is such a fun topic that it could be a topic of its own. If time permits, we might fire up the old computer and look at some fun examples and thought provoking creations.
