Jerry Wernick hails all the way from Montana where he, alongside his wife Linda, once ran the Tamarack Springs Academy in Polebridge. The Wernicks live entirely off-grid, with no electricity bill, their own water source, and little to no grocery bill. Although their property is at an elevation of more than 3,800 feet (1,158 metres), the Wernicks have become adept at growing their own food with the aid of greenhouses and have even been successful with subtropical olive, lemon, and fig trees.
It is our pleasure to announce that Jeremy Warnick will be speaking several times throughout the Sabbath of December 7th, 2019.
