MessageGreetings, Joan. I just finished reading TOL. I loved it. Please keep spreading the good word about buying local. We need it now more than ever. After reading your book, I am more committed now to getting whatever I can't grow myself from the farmers markets that are gaining traction here in Lincoln, Nebr. One question though: Since the water in the Hudson River is salt water, doesn't it do more damage to your garden than flooding by itself might otherwise do? It's hard to believe salt water infiltration isn't a problem in general where you are, which would make gardening successfully very difficult. Thank you so much for your hard work. --Rachael

MessageHi Joan. I enjoyed your interview. it is evident that you have contemplated most if not all aspects of our planet's future. I was wondering if you ever considered population control as a means to a sustainable planet. The world's population keeps growing and so does the need for food and energy, which contradict sustainability. I would appreciate your thoughts on this.

MessageHi Joan! Just finished your book, and I'm so glad I checked it out. My husband and I live on a farm in Iowa. I was raised in California too. I have so many garden questions for you. Would it be possible to send you a letter with a self addressed & stamped envelope?

Cheers, Karen Yakovich

MessageDid you know that sea water can be drunk? only this food can alleviate nutritional deficiencies of our poor diet.

Another solution is the virgin sea salt, unrefined

ciao Joan

MessageHi Joan...Just finished your book 'This Organic Life' and enjoyed it very much. Your eat local way of farming your back yard makes so much sense and reflects many of the ways my family farms. Being a first generation Netherlander I really related to your 'Dutch' fastidiousness....cracked me up!!

Keep up the good work....John e

MessageHi Joan, I just bought Michael Pollan's excellent "In Defence of Food" wherein he writes "The first time I heard the advice to 'just eat food' it was in a speech by Joan Gussow..."

This brought back memories of Alan visiting me when you were both in Tasmania many years ago. I made us a pot of vegetable soup from produce hastily harvested from my garden and he declared it the "best fast food he had ever eaten".

While I prepared a poster for the conference you were attending in Hobart, I did not attend. I've always been much happier in my garden than among crowds. Hoping you are well and still enjoying growing and eating real food.
