2017-11-16 @ 18:00 - 22:00
Permies at the Pub Presents: Food Forestry and Perennial Growing Systems
Wow! What a night this will be!
Local Food seems to be the buzz these days. Well, what does it mean and how do we integrate this into our daily lives, our community and our society in general?
What if I told you that you could increae food production by 75% in your yard/acreage/farm while improving your soil, increasing water retention, feed the pollinators all the while reducing the work load? You would say that I was crazy!! Well, that might be true as I am crazy about Permaculture but this is no fairy tale – perennial growing systems have higher yields, improve soil, cost less in resources and energy expended to manage.
Perennial food systems are our future.
We have Two very special guests coming to our next Permies at the Pub Event and they have a wealth of knowledge in relation to food forestry, perennial food systems, and creating healthy well balanced ecosystems for all living things to enjoy.
Come on out for an informative evening shared with like minded individuals, enjoy a pint or two, eat some great food and go home with all kinds of amazing information to help you plan your garden and new food forest.
