Hands on Permaculture Practice

Spring is here and it is time to get things in the ground. This time of year there is a lot to be done to get ready for the plants when they are ready to Spring forth. There is a wide array of projects to work on for the upcoming series of volunteer days.

We will keep projects fun, educational and productive in these half day volunteer opportunities. You will get to see and experience a developed permaculture system. This part of the year the water is flowing and the buds are tight, storing up energy to leap forth when the days get longer and warmer.

Fall is now in the air and we are still in the harvesting flow, bringing in the bounty. Seed saving is in full swing and we are harvesting seed crops to dry thresh, clean and store. Putting the beads to sleep by mulching and cover cropping is also on the list as we have time. There is always tasks to be done in the nursery to get it ready for the winter.

Each season has its set of projects and observations that go into making a permaculture system more productive, resilient and abundant every year.

To join us fill out the form below and let us know you are interested. Let’s interact with nature together!

A few of the projects we will be working on are:

  • Scything and harvesting mulch to use in beds.
  • Cleaning up the food forest
  • Shaping up beds for planting
  • Making our own potting mix
  • Planting out starts and tending beds
  • Taking cuttings of plant material for Propagation
  • Pollarding the willow windbreak and harvesting basket making material
  • Sifting the char pile to make a new batch of bio char
  • Potting up Seedlings and cuttings into their own pots
  • Cutting and Tending all the berry plants before fruit ripens

We are excited to share how we do all of these projects with you. Having learned through trial and error over the years we are happy to share the knowledge.

Let us know what works for you best.
