No-till gardening/farming conversation in Kansas

This announcement was posted by a member of I share it here just to pass it on. The event will take place January Friday at 5:15 p.m. local time.

Patrice Gros* wishes to have a conversation with interested people on
organic, no-till gardening/farming. He will say a few words to get us
started and then we will open for questions and comments. Please come
to Kansas City Community Gardens at 6701 Kensington, off Gregory
Blvd. in Swope Park in Kansas City on Friday, January 11, at 5:15 PM.
If you need transportation or are willing to offer a ride I will try
to matchmake. Come even if you are brand new to gardening. Patrice is
a wonderful communicator. Patrice is looking for interns to work with
him this season. Please let people know about this opportunity. No
