Fall Permaculture Practices for a Successful Spring Garden

Permaculture is a sustainable and natural approach to agriculture that integrates nature and society. Join Michael & Jennifer in this afternoon workshop that will introduce you to the principles that allowed them to turn their 2/3 acre lot into an urban homestead that produces more than half the food for their family. The workshop will offer a generous mix of philosophy and methodology. Participants will be introduced to the basics of permaculture; mulching, co-planting, natural pest control, chemical free fertilization, and designing a food forest. You will gain the knowledge to plant your fall crops and prepare your spring beds now for a successful garden in the coming year.Rainbow

We will offer you a sampling of our perennial plants to take home for your own gardens and then we will cap off the day with a variety of fresh snacks and hot coffee.

What to bring: Garden shoes, warm farming clothes, gloves, re-fillable water bottle. This workshop is limited to 10 attendees.
