Native Perennial Food Plants for Your Edible Landscape

with Author Dani Baker

Tug Hill Tomorrow Land Trust is pleased to host presentation and book readings by author Dani Baker, co-owner of Wellesley Island’s Cross on Saturday, May 6th at 2:00 – 3:00 pm at the Parish Public Library.

The event are free and open to the public.
Dani has been working with nature to create a thriving edible garden ecosystem at Cross Island Farms. In her new book, The Home-Scale Forest Garden: How to Plan, Plant and Tend a Resilient Edible Landscape, she shares what she learned as she became a forest gardener, providing a practical, in-depth guide to creating a beautiful, bountiful, edible landscape at any scale―from developing an edible hedge, to planting an acre or more.
Dani will sign books either purchased at the event, or books purchased previous to the event, after her presentation. To learn more and purchase a copy ahead of time, visit
