|Kay Baxter and Bob Corker to Visit Melbourne|
|Thursday, 17 May 2012 21:04|
Here at VEG we are counting the sleeps until we host a rare Melbourne visit of Kay Baxter and Bob Corker in early June. This wonderful duo are so far ahead of the game it's not funny. They have been growing virtually all their food, including grains, for over 30 years, and if the supermarkets ran out of food they would probably not realise for some years! Kay Baxter is a household name in the NZ gardening and permaculture community as a legendary seedsaver and author of several popular books on food production, orchard design, and nutritious food. She speaks from the heart and years of experience about her journey into the art of producing and preparing nutrient-dense food in a way that can sustain our soils and bodies for generations to come. Bob Corker has been a permaculture designer for three decades, is the founding force behind the Kotare ecovillage project in NZ, and with Kay is a co-founder of NZ's Koanga Institute.
