Bio:
 Carol Joyce is a Community Herbalist, organic farmer, social worker, & creative facilitator who weaves her love of Herbalism and healing into every facet of her personal and professional life.

Low-Tech Winter Gardening (Season Extension)
Danny Botkin, Laughing Dog Farm
Danny follows a “Guerrilla Gardening” approach to four season farming. Guerrilla Gardening is a way of approaching food growing that is less planful, regular and formulaic, and more opportunistic, situational and intuitive. Such a farmer is already building long term infrastructure, like no till, soil fertility, passive solar greenhouses, and other fertile landscapes, and is hence able to react nimbly to unexpected gifts, goldmines and horticultural opportunities, (as well as calamity and failure!)… Rather than reflexively repeating fixed protocols, rules or formulas, such a grower is ever seeking the smarter, simpler, cheaper, and more ecological and efficient (and graceful!) response to ever-shifting circumstances.
 
Today, all farmers (people!) are called upon to improvise based on life’s normal and unexpected struggles, dramas, and situational opportunities. However the guerrilla gardener attempts to always re-frame the fundamental insecurities (of life, weather, politics, crop failure, uncertain markets, etc.) as windows of opportunities, hence her strong affinity with unlikely “niches”, unexpected windfalls, and high-risk endeavors.
