We have decided to bring all of our individual workshops together for one day! This hands-on gardening workshop will cover: gardening basics, composting and vermicomposting, building healthy soil, building raised beds, sheet mulching, no-till methods, choosing the right annual and perennial fruits and vegetables for our zone, seeds vs. transplants, culinary and medicinal herbs, attracting pollinators, natural weed management, and growing shiitakes.
The proceeds from this event will help us provide future free educational workshops for the community, and will help cover start-up costs including seeds and supplies for our new farming operation. We will also be able to help La Vista with expenses such as the water bill, propane, and farm operating costs.
Thank you for your support.
Are you ready for the next step in becoming a changemaker in your own community? Would you like to learn how to apply permaculture to your own life and your community?
Permaculture is an ecological design lens largely based on indigenous wisdom to view the big-picture perspective of earth and its inhabitants. Permaculture examines the interconnectedness of living systems on earth and how we can observe and interact with these systems in ways that increase the health and well being of all life on earth.
We will be diving deep into social applications for ecological problems.
