Inside the Square: Hosting Mel Bartholomew, Creator & Founder of Square Foot Gardening

Well, it started with this, a vision to welcome SQUARE FOOT GARDENING FOUNDATION MEL BARTHOLOMEW to the Adirondack - Lake George Region. One of my other home away from home places. Family roots, past and present. Here's where it took us!

A neat and tidy 3 days turned into a wonderful 4 days of meeting and greeting local librarians, small business and family run garden center owners, an evening at SPAC with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, a luncheon at the Lake George Club, and SFG Certified Instructors joining us from points near and far.

When I attended the 2009 Square Foot Gardening Symposium at Gardeners Supply, in VT and met Mel, completed my instructor certification, never in my wildest dreams would I have ever imagined in the future welcoming Mel to the lake, leading the way to share SFG globally and to have co-created an online instructor certification course.

This photo shows only half of our class. We are many, but need more to share the 4 M's.

As a SFG Certified Instructor passionate about this efficient, neat and tidy, "no work, no weeds, no worry" method of growing fresh, nutrient dense food - it's a total happy dance to support and share "The Man, The Method, The Mission & The Movement" with every individual, group and community worldwide.

Thank you, Mel for making the  trip and we hope to see you out and about in the near future.
