Please join South Whidbey Tilth in welcoming Trina Paulus, sustainable agriculture activist and author of the internationally best selling book, “Hope for the Flowers,” to our community. She will share some of her thoughts on today’s issues in sustainable agriculture at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 4 at the Trinity Lutheran Church annex in Grigware Hall, preceded by a 6 p.m. potluck. Her talk will be followed by a round table discussion.
Her book was translated into 13 languages and continues to be in print after 40 years. Paulus is a lifelong activist promoting sustainable agriculture and fighting pesticides, genetically modified organisms and other environmental problems. She is working on a new book that has to do with the importance of worms and butterflies. As an elder in the activist community she has a great deal to share from her life’s work.
Trina Paulus currently serves as vice president of both the Cornucopia Network of New Jersey and the Central Rocky Mountain Permaculture Institute. She raises several hundred Monarch butterflies each summer to increase the population and encourage others to personally experience the miracle of transformation.
