(About the picture: The grainery at Salamander Springs Farm is the first structure one encounters on arriving up the steep, mountain lane. This building, still new when the first round table was recorded in August 2015, stands ready for the opening of another season on the farm.)
Today’s interview is a round table recorded in Clear Creek in Mid-April, 2016. The participants in the conversation include Jereme Zimmerman, author of Make Mead Like a Viking, “Ziggy” Liloia of The Year of Mud, Eric Puro and Michael Beck of The POOSH, and Susana Lein of Salamander Springs Farm.
This is the first of two pieces from that evening. Today’s ends as Susana and I had to leave, her to a birthday party and for me to carry on a tradition of reading bedtime stories to my children each night, even when I’m on the road.
In the next episode, you’ll hear Eric Puro behind the microphone as the guest host leading the conversation. I haven’t listened to it yet, so have no idea what’s in there. What I do know, is that in the panel discussion today, we talk about mead and mead making, natural building, permaculture farming. Throughout you’ll hear about the importance of having community and people to share your work, knowledge, and experiences with. Together, we create more than we do alone.
