June 25: Joe Eck / To Eat: A Country Life

06/25/2013 7:00 pm

In 1974, Joe Eck and Wayne Winterrowd moved from Boston to southern Vermont, where they became the proprietors of a twenty-eight-acre patch of wilderness. The land was forested, overgrown, and wild, complete with a stream. Today, North Hill’s seven carefully cultivated acres—open to
visitors during the warmer months—are an internationally renowned garden.

In the intervening years, both the garden and the gardening books (A Year at North Hill, Living Seasonally, Our Life in Gardens) Eck and Winterrowd created together have been acclaimed in many forms.  They were at work on To Eat  when Winterrowd passed away, in 2010.

Informative, funny, and moving,  To Eat  is a book  that you will return to again and again.
