Get to know Jason Akers, the Self-Sufficient Gardener. 

What are you going to speak about at the MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIR? 

Jason AkersI’m excited about working with the children in the children’s garden workshop. I love working with my 3-year-old son in the garden. Hopefully we will be able to let kids put hands on seeds, soil and bugs. I’m also grateful to be able to share what I know about compost in my presentation Compost: What You Need to Know. That presentation is all about sharing what I’ve learned about composting all organic kitchen waste and the myriad of ways to look at your waste as a resource.

What are you most looking forward to sharing with FAIR attendees? 

My enthusiasm about gardening.

Tell us about your background with your particular topic.
