Recorded at Iowa City Public Library, July 5, 2017

Part of Iowa City Public Library’s 2017 Adult Summer Reading Program

Blair Frank, owner and keeper of Gaia’s Peace Garden will be here to tell us the story of his community garden. The one acre garden, originally created by Blair and his wife Mary Kirkpatrick, was designed form the start to be not only a community gathering place but an example of permaculture practices and chemical free gardening. The garden contains a labyrinth, prairie, butterfly garden, culinary and medicinal herbs, an orchard, and picnic areas to enjoy. It is open daily from morning through evening and is located at 2066 Bristol Drive in Iowa City.
