In the Fall 2014 Nexus...
Learn about urban farming, community gardens, 'P' patches and new farming models being used in our area to combat 'food deserts'! There is a great article on pollinators and selecting plants that help them as well as why adding mud puddles helps them acquire nutrients.
There are also articles on: Giant Pond Blobs, Forestry Pizza Seminars, Focus on Farming, Septic Workshops and the new Port Susan Owner's Manual. Check out the 2014 Fall Nexus at the link below.
