Nance Klehm with Ben Kessler

Ben Kessler is, or was, a school teacher, biologist, gardener, and nursery man. He used to work with birds who eat mammals who eat plants, and so became interested in botany by process of elimination. Ben is a worker partner with Little Bluestem, a worker-directed nonprofit that propagates and distributes plants native to central Virginia. Ben lives in a little holler in Nelson County where the water runs sweet.
