Feeding the Gulf Coast (formerly Bay Area Food Bank) and the Mobile Public Library invite the public to a screening of "Perennial Vegetable Gardening with Eric Toensmeier" at Ben May Main Library, 753 Government Street, Bernheim Hall on Saturday, October 1, 10 a.m.-noon.
Eric Toensmeier has studied permaculture and useful plants of the world for over two decades. In his documentary, he introduces us to more than 100 species of little-known perennial vegetables. Perennial vegetables offer gardeners many benefits such as greater resistance to pests, little care, multiple years of harvests, improvement of soil structure, and much more! Come learn how you can use these techniques in your garden for a larger yield with less work. Admission is free.
Working through member organizations and special programs, Feeding the Gulf Coast provides nutritious food to meet the challenge of feeding people who are hungry as a result of personal crisis or disaster. The garden program is aimed at growing organic food for hungry people and teaching both children and adults how they can grow food for themselves.
Registration is encouraged. For more information or to register, contact Meghan Tanner at 251-653-1617, ext. 118, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
From the Library, "Please note, the author of the DVD, Eric Toensmeier will not be at this screening. We just added his information because it is his DVD. Apologies for any confusion. Many thanks to his publisher, Chelsea Publishing, for allowing us to show the film to the public for free."
