This Wednesday at the Co-op: Wolsak and Wynn + The Mustard Seed present Jenna Butler reading from her new book “A Profession of Hope: Farming on the Edge of the Grizzly Trail” – please join us! Feel free to indicate your attendance on our Facebook event, here.
About the book: Early in the winter of 2006, Jenna Butler found herself standing on a cold country road, looking over an unpromising quarter section of northern bush. With the glow of her car’s headlights, she surveyed an abandoned grain bin, listened to the howl of a coyote pack and the call of a great horned owl, and knew a switch had flipped inside of her. Passionate about small farming and organic practices, Butler and her partner have withstood drought, floods, insects and their neighbours’ disbelief over the past nine years to create Larch Grove Farm.
