Ken Taylor of Windmill Point Farm spoke at COG-Ottawa’s Eco Farm Day in February 2008. See www.windmillpointfarm.ca, visit the Saturday food market, or write Windmill Point Farm, 2103 Perrot Blvd., N.D. Ile Perrot, QC J7V 8P4.
After 35 years of trials and errors in ‘designing’ his own farm, Ken Taylor offers words of encouragement for those wanting to change to the more sustainable practices encompassed in permaculture farming.
Canadian farmers should be ashamed of themselves…at least I am ashamed! I was born and raised on our family farm and will probably die on my own family farm; I’ve been here thirty years already. This should qualify me as one talking from experience rather than those all too familiar voices that “circle talk” (recycle others’ recycled info).
