Originally published in 1968, 'Please Plant this Book' was distributed free, in San Francisco, and contained a small folder with eight differently-colored seed packets of four flowers and four vegetables--each with a Richard Brautigan poem and planting instructions. The folder is illustrated with three photos of a young girl, Caledonia Jahrmarkt, taken by Haight-Ashbury photographer Bill Brach. see: Brautigan.net
Richard Gary Brautigan (January 30, 1935 – ca. September 16, 1984) was an American novelist, poet, and short story writer. His work often clinically and surrealistically employs black comedy, parody, and satire, with emotionally blunt prose describing pastoral American life intertwining with technological progress. He is best known for his novels Trout Fishing in America (1967) and In Watermelon Sugar (1968).
A fifty year-old, obsolete and un-managed tree farm
resulted in densely packed, diseased and dying trees. Less than 20% of the tree remained in canopy and the forest floor was devoid of viable habitat.
Older, diseased and small stem DougFir trees were removed in order to reveal clusters of second growth Redwood trees.
An additional 1400+ Sequoia Sempiviren seedlings have been planted in this 4 acre sample plot.
