Northland Bioneers

Northland Bioneers ConferenceThe Northland Bioneers Conference will take place this weekend at the University of Minnesota. Produced by Northland Sustainable Solutions, the meeting focuses on environmental and social sustainability. For more information and a list of the speakers, see the TC Planet article about the event.

If you are inspired to cultivate your own plentiful garden next year, now is a great time to curl up with Buffalo Bird Woman’s Garden for tips on sustainable agricultural practices–and a chance to meet Buffalo Bird Woman, a master gardener of the 19th century. “I sometimes say to my son Goodbird: ‘You young folks, when you want green corn, open the husk to see if the grain is ripe enough, and thus expose it; but I just go out into the field and pluck the ear. . . . I do not think you are very good gardeners in these days!’”
