Congaree Land Trust (CLT) will host a book sale and signing featuring noted conservationist and farmer Billy Cate on Thursday, October 7. The event will be held at Half-Moon Outfitters at 2912 Devine Street in Columbia from 5-7 pm. Proceeds from the book sale and signing will benefit Congaree Land Trust.
Cate’s new publication, The Farm – A family’s relationship with its land, debuted this summer to enthusiastic reviews from readers in the Midlands and beyond. Cate is a conservation easement donor, former CLT Executive Director and Board Member. Cate’s farm is roughly 1250 acres situated near the Wateree River in the heart of the COWASEE Basin in Lower Richland County, South Carolina in an area once flooded by sea water.
