Hello all! First, I wanted to say thanks to everyone who stopped by for the Sustainable Yard Tour.  I think we had about 100 or so people here, and a good time was had by all.    We met a lot of other garden geeks and seed savers, as well as a great number of local foodies and just all around cool people.   We were also able to connect with Andy from the International Institute, about the cool project they are doing, called the Global Farms Initiative.
