The fantastic Firehouse Gallery in Berryville today featured a NYTimes best selling book authored by our neighbor, and a trunk show of local art featuring sustainability. Also salami.

Forrest Pritchard’s new book Growing Tomorrow is still climbing up the best seller charts. Forrest is a neighbor and a friend. (See a video conversation featured here on apothecaryshed featuring Forrest’s previous book, Gaining Ground.)

Both Keith and Kelli Patterson are outstanding artists. But we’ll let you judge that for yourself.

We recently hosted a bevy of Clarke County friends and neighbors at Coal Stove Sink for an interview and book signing with local sustainable agriculture farmer and author Forrest Pritchard. Forrest and I spent a few minutes chatting about aspects of the book Gaining Ground, his life farming, and the big picture—making a living while farming in America.

Special thanks to Jack McGraw for filming, editing, and making this piece coherent. And thanks to all of our friends and neighbors who created a warm and welcoming community for Forrest’s debut as an author. Forrest, we’re proud of what you do and what you’re doing.

Forrest Writes a Book

Our neighbor Forrest Pritchard just published a book. Amy stole it, so I have not read it yet (wish me luck getting it back), but my bet is it is both entertaining and clear headed. I thumbed through it today after our copy arrived, and I can’t wait to read it. Sustainable agriculture, organic farming, ecological stewardship, and local food; what’s not to like? We salute you Forrest.

Order it from amazon.
