HC Speaker: John Hershey's Vision

Sunday, October 21, 2018

John Hershey, a force in the permaculture movement, was born around 1900. One of his homes and farm was on North Guthriesville Road in the area now occupied by the Villages at Timberlake. His vision was for a better kind of American farm, one that took full advantage of what he called “Orbit of Nature.” He self-published “Nature’s Obits, Mans Profit.” It was his work with J. Russell Smith, a professor at Wharton, that was the foundation of a movement known as permaculture.

Presentation is by Dale Hendricks, a self-described “itinerant preacher on ecology and trees who tries to communicate new ideas, bring the young folks along, and have a little fun.” He is the owner of Green Light Plants in Landenberg.
