    Hey Boota! I just had to say that. It was “Boota” not “Boot!” Actually, some time I would love to take your tour. Used to ride my horses through the Fells; all my growing up years. What a wonderful gift to us all.

    Trying to reach Boot. Please share my email with him. Have some nice testimonials to share with him from our teaching days together. Good to see he follows his passion.

    Boot, I got your names from Claudia Thompson of Grow Native of which I am a member. I also have a problem you might help me with. The Nahant Garden Club has a program on Trees for Arbor Day on April the 27th at 6 p.m. at the Nahant Village Church. I had a young Horticulturalist and permaculture person going to give us a talk on weeds to Trees, about a discussion about edible landscapes. However she forgo to tell me she move to New Hampshire. I wonder if you could give us a program on trees on this evening. I know it is last minute, but Claudia said she has heard great things about your programs. Please let me know asap.
