We are creating a food growing explosion on our acreage this spring!
Please join us as we install a large no-till garden by sheet mulching in our yard and a giant hugelkultur raised bed next to our chicken coop. If you don’t know what either of those things are, here is your chance to find out! Here’s the deal: we show and teach the permaculture projects we’re installing, plus provide snacks and lunch (and a good time!), and you provide muscle power to help us boost our food production to the next level of abundance.
Here’s how the day looks:
9-9:30am: you show up!
9:30-10am: we all limber up with some yoga to keep our bodies happy and well as we work.
10am: get to know each other, no till gardening seminar (with plenty of “this is where we screwed up when we tried this the first time or five”)
10:30am-noon: get the work party started!
1-2:30pm: learn the hugelkultur principles, keep the awesome moving
2:30-3pm: afternoon iced tea break (and other refreshment)
3-5pm: other seminar(s) TBA, wrap up a job well done
Optional: stay for potluck supper and bonfire celebration (if you aren’t sick of us by then ;))
We can only productively put to use about fifteen-twenty people; please RSVP to get directions and make sure we don’t have people with nothing to do… Please contact Megan at megan.is.silly [at] gmail.com to RSVP. Also, please bring any wheelbarrows, shovels, hand saws you can… And work gloves and weather appropriate gear!
PLEASE NOTE: As part of building the hugelkultur bed, there will be at least one chainsaw in operation, and large(ish) chunks of trees being moved. Please bring your safety awareness!
