I'm actually writing this from San Martin Jilotepeque, Guatemala. I'm here on an agroecological journey into the world of highland coffee, maize, and etc growing. And making new friends, and getting a litte "two-thirds world" perspective on the world of agroecology in the U.S. I will be putting together a presentation of my trip (photos, etc), for when I get back in August.
But I write to say that, if you are in SF or thereabouts, and want to grow food without major pest problems, you are in for a treat if you attend this upcoming workshop at GFE:
