Hi everyone, Permacultivate's own Phil Wert will be giving a talk at Sugarbush Nursery on Route 10 this Saturday at 11AM entitled "Topics in Permaculture". It's a free event and a great way to get an introduction on how to incorporate some permaculture ideas and design techniques that fit your own living situation. Here's the link: http://www.sugarbushnursery.com/events.htm
Plant some shit! A fantastic urban perspective on the transformative role of gardens in distressed cities with underserved populations.
Great overview of front yard forest gardening! Our vision: neighborhoods full of such gardens, with residents well-educated in permaculture concepts. We can do this!
Getting our plots in Amanda's Garden ready for the season, including some of our amazing perennials such as this beautiful Russian Comfrey specimen. We decided to "chop and drop" the stalk and mulch the beds at this point, which transfers all the rich minerals and nutrients collected to the garden soils. This can be done several times a year, and the plant will simply grow back in several weeks!
So far this year, Permacultivate has sold about 150 POUNDS worth of our fresh, local lettuce mix. Many thanks to our many supporters and volunteers who help make this happen! Don't forget our open volunteer hours in the City Park Greenhouse from 10 - 2 tomorrow - we hope to see you there!
Lately, many local youth have had the opportunity to come into the city greenhouse to get a first-hand look at our local sustainable food system. For the past two evenings, we've had the pleasure of hosting groups of youth from the Reading Recreation Commission. They especially love the tilapia and worm bins!
