O’Malley Stoumen presents "Sustainable Gardening"
From Off-The-Grid Farm to City Lot” at our April meeting. O’Malley and her husband spent their first 15 years of marriage on a remote 160-acre farm in Northern California where they lived completely off-the-grid with a windmill for power. In 1986, they moved to a home in Healdsburg on a large lot - the climate allowing them to grow more food on a smaller piece of land. In 2005, they moved to Palo Alto and live on an even smaller lot, but their garden of trees, vines, perennials and annuals provide a full year of seasonal fruits and vegetables. Each season brings new crops and a fresh look to the garden.
