Sarah Bibens - Rosalind, we are making some bold changes to create the National Green Centre – an industry event in St Louis Jan 9 & 10. We would love to have you present on edible landscaping but do not have budgeted funds to make that happen. Would you have any interest in partnering with us – we could promote your books extensively in exchange for the presentation? I know this is a long shot but these are unprecedented times and we are trying to create a national event for our industry that focuses on a sustainable future. Thanks for your consideration.

Roberta - Another good source of seeds for Zone 3 to 5 is High Mowing Seeds — all organic and the company grows most of the seeds themself.

Aimee McAuliffe - Hello Rosalind,

I am looking to have an edible landscaping tract at the Farwest Show on August 26 in Portland, Ore. Flora & Fauna books will be running the bookstore and happy to promote and sell your books. Could you let me know your availability and costs?

Thank you,
Aimee McAuliffe

Patty Shadof - Rosalind,
Don’t forget to tell everyone that you were interviewed on Sierra Club Radio. I missed hearing the interview but we could get you the link from it, I think.

Janeen Thomas - Dear Rosalind,

I attended your talk on Friday morning at the SF Flower and Garden Show in San Francisco. Wow! So many of the same ideas. I am a horticulture student at Solano College and have been recommended for an internship. I would be planning a vegetable garden with Foster youth at youth homes in Contra Costa. Look forward to learning everything I can. Thanks for the inspirational talk. Best Wishes! Janeen Thomas, Benicia, CA

Betsy Smith - Hi Rosalind,
Some years ago I won second prize in a chili contest with your recipe for Vegetarian
Chili. I’d like to make it again this Friday for my 75th birthday party–there are over
half a dozen vegetarian guests and I know it would be a great hit. Which book of yours is the recipe in? I’ll try and get it from the Patchogue Library.
All the best,
Betsy Smith

j. lichtig - Hi,

Enjoyed looking at your “Edible Landscapes”. Do you have any programs in Balto or at Brookside this summer? I’m really into gardening here in Balt.
