Permaculture Design For Yard, Homestead, and Farm
This Saturday! Join NOFA VT for a tour and workshop 9 am – 3pm
August 26 – Jeffersonville and Johnson, VT
We’ll start the morning with a brief tour of the ‘urban homestead’ and apothecary downtown Jeffersonville, then head to the farm for a permaculture design workshop, wood fired pizza from the earth oven, and tree crop and natural building tour.
Are you interested in learning how to ‘read’ a landscape, map your future, and cooperate with nature to be more productive and resilient?
Join Keith Morris of Prospect Rock Permaculture for a hands-on exploration of whole-system ecological design. In this workshop, Keith will provide a design process that you can apply to your own site (regardless of size) that includes the importance of perennial tree crops and climate resilience. We’ll explore a variety of ‘new’, experimental, and lost, traditional plants; DIY and debt-free infrastructure improvements and potential ‘micro-enterprises’ for the garden or homestead. To see a variety of design scale, we’ll begin at Prospect Rock Permaculture’s downtown homestead and apothecary, and then travel down the street to Willow Crossing Farm- Vermont’s longest running permaculture research and education site. Lunch will be included and prepared in Keith’s onsite pizza oven.
Any questions can be directed to me or NOFA VT http://www.NofaVT.org
