John Tullock – a local garden guru, author, and authority on straw bale gardens – will lead the workshop.  John is the author of 20 how-to books covering a range of topics from aquariums, to orchids, to growing food. A UT alumnus, he recently retired from years of self-employment as a marketing consultant specializing in sustainability issues.
