9 Simple Steps to Grow Your Own Food in Your Own Backyard
Join us for an evening with Jamie and Nicole Coomer from Ridgeback Farms to learn self sustainable living and organic gardening.
 The Coomers have been practicing permaculture, living a self sustaining lifestyle, and doing organic gardening for over 12 years.  First on a 1/10th acre lot in the middle of Metro-Atlanta, then a 1/2 acre lot outside Elizabethtown, and now a 12 acre farm in Graves County.  It will be an evening of fun, learning and planning together.   Participants will leave with a “plan in hand” to either begin a journey or enhance a current system. Nicole will share 'handouts' of her resources.   Some participants will win door prizes, including gift cards from Lowes. Join us for a evening of fun and learning.
