Ron Krupp ~ Ins and Outs of Gardening
Sunday, March 26 at 2 pm
Join us in The Gallery for Vermont author and "Gardening Guru"
On March 26th, right during Warner’s Maple Weekend, as we celebrate all things syrupy and muddy, we welcome Vermont Organic gardener and author Ron Krupp to the bookstore to discuss his books, and everything you need to get started with your own garden, right now! His first book, The Woodchuck’s Guide to Gardening, tells of 30 years learning the ins and outs, full of New England common sense for the gardener of all abilities. He also delves in to foraging, planting by the stars, putting food by, and gardening with children.
In his newest book, The Woodchuck Returns to Gardening he dives even further into the practical knowledge for the vegetables, fruits and berries that we all yearn to have right in our home gardens. Ron Krupp is one of the “gardening guru” for these times. Join Ron and learn all you need to get started, or to get further inspiration in your gardening venture, Sunday, March 26 at 2 pm.
I would like to present my new Vermont garden book,
The Woodchuck R eturns to Gardening.
It’s a sister-companion to my first book The Woodchuck’s Guide to Gardening, now in its ninth printing with over 18,000 copies sold. The book received the Christian Science Monitor Garden Book of the Year Award for New England.
Just like my first book The Woodchuck R eturns to Gardening is rooted in organic methods. The book begins with My Garden Journal from 2012 and 2013, a recounting of two dynamic years in my gardens at home and the Tommy Thompson Community Garden in the Intervale in Burlington, Vermont. A jester called the “Chuckster” follows me around making fun of my gardening adventures and asking questions
that allow me to offer helpful insights.
The main part of the book travels into the world of vegetables, berries, and fruits. It includes stories, history, observations and information from the “Garden Patch.” There are many sketches and black and white photos, but this time, I’ve added colored paintings and photos in the new book. And a good gardening to you.
“The Woodchuck’s Guide to Gardening, Ron’s first garden book, is one of our go-to garden books. The conversational writing style, historical tidbits, and quirky observations make it as fun to read as informative. We can always count on Ron for garden advice, but his impact goes much further. For decades, Ron has been making the critical link between food and community, and the important role that the food we grow together has
in strengthening our food system. In the words of Fred Schmidt, Founder Emeritus of the UVM Center for Rural Studies, and a garden neighbor, Ron is `always there, part of the state’s food, farm and garden landscape.’”
