Description:

A guild is a group of plants, animals, and other organisms which work well together. In Permaculture, a guild can be as simple as a collection of plants in healthy soil in a bed, or as complex as a food forest, fruiting hedge, or intentionally-designed watershed. What type of guilds are right for your needs? Come join us, as we talk about guilds in Permaculture Design. Recommended reading: Gaia’s Garden, by Toby Hemenway, 2nd edition (Not required, but will give you a good foundation in what we’ll be talking about.)

Description:

Come learn about the importance of managing your organic waste (food scraps and yard trimmings) at home. As the drought worsens and the climate warms, home-based waste management has never been more relevant. With wide reaching applications, backyard composting cuts your contribution to landfills, conserves water, and builds healthy all-natural soils that store carbon. At this workshop you will learn to build, manage and utilize a home compost pile. Please join us for an exciting journey into the world of rot, exploring why something that so many are repulsed by might in fact be the way we save the planet.
