Our Chelsea Green Authors : Bryan Connolly

Bryan Connolly

Bryan Connolly farms organically at his small homestead in northeastern Connecticut where he buys and grows seeds from far and wide to satisfy his fascination with plant genetics. When not "swamping the world with with plant propagules," Bryan raises goats, chickens, and turkeys on the farm and assists customers at the Willimantic Food Coop. He has a master's degree in pollination biology from the University of Connecticut and has worked for the University of Mississippi's Medicinal Plant Garden, New England Wild Flower Society, and the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection.

    NOFA Guides Set

    A series of 8 guides originally published by NOFA (Northeast Organic Farming Association), on organic principles and practices for both the beginner farmer as well as established farmers looking to convert to organic, or deepen their practices. Each book is 100 pages, but the information is weighty; the guides use a strong whole-systems farming theory behind their practical advice, as well as offer historical information, further resources, detailed appendices, and profiles of various organic farms across the Northeast.
